What race are you looking forward to in 2019?

GVOC Sprint Camp

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

I really enjoyed NAOCs in Whitehorse last summer

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

Rumsey in Alberta is quite a fun map – fast running speeds, good hills, cows.

How do you normally prepare for an important race?

In the months leading up to it, I plan my training so as to be at my physical peak for the race, I train on terrain and maps similar to the event, and I look at old maps of the area, making courses and planning routes. For the day of the race, I make sure to get enough sleep, eat my normal pre-race breakfast, and do a good physical and mental warmup.

What do you like to do outside of orienteering?

Recently I’ve been climbing and reading in my spare time.
