How did you first get involved in orienteering? 
I began running with Adventure running kids when I was 13 or 14. I started orienteering with the program and kept with it.

What would a typical week of training look like for you (at a part of the season of your choosing)?
Generally about 3 harder sessions a week, maybe 2 running intervals, and another orienteering. About 9-10 hours of running and then another couple hours of cycling or strength

How do you normally prepare for an important race? 
For any races that I’m taking fairly seriously, I’ll find a map of the terrain to get an idea of the challenges I’ll be facing. Other than that I just try to get a good sleep the night before and breakfast in the morning. Obviously, the more important the race the more time I put into preparing.

What is your big life orienteering goal?
My ‘elite’ big life orienteering goal would be to just generally be in the group of top orienteers. If I get there I’m happy. I just like orienteering, and have aspirations to be good, but no clear goals. In the long term, just really enjoy the sport.


Christian is a member of Orienteering Canada’s 2020 High Performance Program.
