What race are you looking forward to in 2019?

Canadian Orienteering Champs in Montreal. Running a championship race for a home crowd is an experience I’ve come to cherish.

What is your favorite orienteering event that you have done so far?

Racing in the Yukon is always incredible. I had a great streak of races at the North American’s last summer and really appreciate all the hard work and effort that went into pulling those off. A spectacular week.

Which map in Canada do you think all orienteers have to try at least once?

Without hesitation: Lewes Lake, Whitehorse Yukon. It’s a personal obsession at this point.

How do you normally prepare for an important race?

Plan, visualize plan, execute plan.

What do you like to do outside of orienteering?

I’ve started partner dancing. Call it active recovery?
