A memory from 10MILA terrain

Already in 1985, had O-Ringen, or the Swedish 5-days, as the race was known at that time, two finishes at the Lugnet area in Falun.
Most orienteers know that Falun in 1985 still holds the record of 25,000 participants over five days.
But few know that the then national team member Anders Erik Olsson won the last day in exactly the same terrain where 10MILA will be decided. Here are his memories from the race which can be a source of inspiration.
A little background:  Anders Erik Olsson went out as the eighth man, five minutes down on the lead. He was fastest on the 11.5-kilometer course by two minutes and had an average kilometer time of 5.25 minutes. It helped Anders secure second place in total after the winner Joakim Ingelsson.

Annichen 10MILA Message Author

Now it is clear that Annichen Kringstad will compose the special messages that are traditionally read by the winners at the finish of 10MILA.

For the organizers, it was obvious to ask the orienteering legend Annichen Kringstad if she was interested in the task.  Annichen has won several 10MILA titles, and has strong ties to two of the organizing clubs.  She was an active elite in Stora Tuna OK and is chairman of OK Kåre.

It is a great honor to have been given this task, it will be exciting to create something special for these races, said Annichen.

According to information from the 10MILA Association, Annichen Kringstad is the first woman in 10MILA’s history to create the messages.
