10MILA countdown: Two days left until one of the main highlights of the spring season for an orienteer: 10MILA. World of O will of course follow 10Mila all night on the LiveBlog – I hope to see many of you there!
Countless hours of 10Mila 2011 Web TV with GPS tracking (will set you back 90 SEK = about 10 Euros) is offered. There is also free audio available (speaker sound) and live results available. Start is at 14:30 CET Saturday April 30th for the women and 21:30 CET Saturday 30th for the men.
As always in 10Mila, the women run 5 legs and the men run 10 legs. The women run from 4.7 km (third leg, ungaffled) to 9.5 legs (last leg). All legs except for the third leg are gaffled. The men run from 7.2 km (7th leg, ungaffled) to 16.5 km (last leg, gaffled and 4th leg, ungaffled). All legs except for the 4th leg (”Långa natten” – the long night) and the 7th leg are ungaffled. The 5 first leg are run in darkness – the 6th and 7th in dawn, and the three last legs in daylight.

- Replay of LiveBlog 2010 and LiveBlog 2009. From the 2010 edition; Thierry Gueorgiou: - It feels good. We have been so frustrated so many years. Now it feels really good. There is no better feeling than running in front. It just felt like an easy training on a sunday morning. This year we were very well prepared. It is one of the last goals of my career. So now it is only left the long distance at the WOC.
