Summer-O 2016: Swiss O-Week

Today’s event in the Summer-O 2016 series is Swiss O-Week, organized every second/third year in Switzerland. Swiss O-Week was organized in St. Moritz in Engadin this year – and the runners met a combination of interesting orienteering and fantastic scenery.

Most of the Swiss top runners were participating – but most took it easy on some of the stages. Also many other top runners took the opportunity to combine competitions and trainings in the Swiss alps. Overall winners in the elite classes were Baptiste Rollier and Sabine Hauswirth. The orienteering technical challenges were varied – one of the routechoice legs in the men elite class is shown below.

The next edition of Swiss O-Week will be organized in Gstaad in 2019.

The Summer-O 2016 series

About the Summer-O 2016 series: Traveling to new places and experience orienteering in new terrain is one of the highlights of the summer holidays for many orienteers – both orienteers on high level and hobby orienteers. The “Summer-O 2016″ series takes a quick look at some of the summer orienteering races of 2016. Sometimes it may just be a map with a course, sometimes several maps, sometimes results, sometimes comments, sometimes GPS-tracking or animations.

  1. The Swiss-O-Week takes place every 3rd and not every other year. Therefore next time 2019 in Gstaad. Greetings, Ruedi from Switzerland

    • Not entirely correct. The Swiss-O-Week takes place in an irregular cylce. Two years ago (2014) in Zermatt, five years ago (2011) in Laax and in three years time in Gstaad.

      • Thanks Ruedi & SwissRunner. Obviously an easy mistake to do, I’ll correct the article!
