What race are you looking forward to in 2019?

In 2019 I am most looking forward to trying some new races in places that I’ve never been. I’m planning on attending a week of races in Arizona, and perhaps some other races in Europe, but I haven’t made plans yet! I am also looking forward to the middle distance at the World Champs in Norway, in claiming my personal spot.

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

There are so many to choose from! My favourite so far is likely the Swiss O Week in 2016! I’ve also enjoyed every JWOC I’ve attended for the past 4 years.

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

There are a ton of crazy and different maps in Canada, but I think that everyone needs to try running on the Carp Ridge map in Ottawa, so much fun! A close second in the Rocky Ridge map near Hamilton.

How do you normally prepare for an important race?

A few months out I will start altering my training in 2 ways: 1) my running and orienteering workouts get a little faster and more intense and 2) I make my training more specific to the conditions and terrain where the race will take place. For example, before the hot races of Hungary last year, I did some heat training in the months prior to JWOC.

What do you like to do outside of orienteering?

I love being outdoors and adventuring! I love hiking, camping, paddling, cycling, photography and music.
