Registration guide<br />

Finally! Third time is the charm! May the dream about O-<strong>Ringen</strong> Uppsala 2022<br />

now become reality! That and a thousand other thoughts and feelings of hope<br />

and happiness surfaced when the government announced that the limits on the<br />

<strong>number</strong> of participants are being removed.<br />

The pandemic is still present in our<br />

everyday life and far from over<br />

and the hope about an O-<strong>Ringen</strong><br />

next summer is obviously<br />

dependent on many things beyond our<br />

control. But if everything goes well so that<br />

we can finally meet again it will, after two<br />

postponed events, be wonderful to do so<br />

next summer at the biggest orienteering<br />

adventure in the world: O-<strong>Ringen</strong>.<br />

The announcement about the removed<br />

restrictions gives a new burst of life and<br />

energy to the officials who resume their<br />

work with full power, not just in Uppsala but<br />

also at future O-<strong>Ringen</strong> destinations. After<br />

a two-year hiatus plans and preparations<br />

need to be dusted off and updated for us to<br />

be ready to receive all you enthusiastic orienteers<br />

from all corners of the world. After<br />

these two years the craving might be extra<br />

strong so we may be looking forward to an<br />

extra-large reunion at O-<strong>Ringen</strong> Uppsala<br />

2022.<br />

You are very welcome to share the joy<br />

with us!<br />

STRATEGY <br />

Community,<br />

SÖT<br />

wise choices, and<br />

communication<br />

That is our focus when we move forward to make<br />

O-<strong>Ringen</strong> a sustainable experience both for you as<br />

participants but also for our partners and suppliers<br />

as well as for us as a business. Three years has now<br />

passed since we got a new owner directive with a<br />

partially adjusted focus. Sustainability in combination<br />

with an even more positive experience that creates<br />

added value for more people has now been pushed higher<br />

up on the agenda. This is not new for us, but it gets a<br />

clearer focus than before.<br />

compensated for their work and the Swedish orienteering movement<br />

can and should count on us to shape cost structures that let<br />

us actively create possibilities to develop as a continued financially,<br />

socially, and environmentally sustainable event.<br />

The change of direction and focus that we have made, is at once<br />

both inspiring and challenging. We look forward to finally arranging<br />

an O-<strong>Ringen</strong> with community, wise choices, and communication<br />

as starting points and focus. These three starting points<br />

consolidate the focal areas and enables both the organizer as well<br />

as individual officials to contribute, with actions and behaviour, to<br />

fulfilling the strategy for the next generation of O-<strong>Ringen</strong>.<br />

MINDRE SÖT<br />

This has led us to develop a new strategy that will lead us<br />

into 2025. This in the light of us needing to move forward<br />

with two postponed events behind us. The foundation for<br />

our direction is global goals where good health and well-being<br />

are obvious factors, and in our case, this includes our officials and<br />

employees, our participants, partners, and host municipalities.<br />

Consumption shall be sustainable, and production shall be decreased.<br />

That requires consistently aware and wise choices, which<br />

obviously also applies to transports. These issues are always on the<br />

table when we look forward and make plans for future events and<br />

the development of O-<strong>Ringen</strong>. Our arena and our competition area<br />

are of decisive importance to us and others, including eco systems<br />

and biodiversity. That means that the choices we make must be<br />

well thought-out, deliberate, and wise, to achieve the lofty goals we<br />

aspire to when we arrange and then close an event. To succeed we<br />

must cooperate even more closely.<br />

Economic sustainability has come into focus after two years with<br />

postponed events. According to the new directives we shall have<br />

sustainable finances, so we need to better identify the conditions<br />

that create that possibility. We want our officials to be properly<br />

Restrictions are easing<br />

- now we long for O-<strong>Ringen</strong>!<br />

On the 29th September the Swedish<br />

Government will ease the majority of<br />

the remaining Covid restrictions that<br />

have been in place since early 2020.<br />

This means that there will no longer<br />

be a limit placed on the <strong>number</strong> of<br />

participants or spectators at sporting<br />

events.<br />

“We are obviously really pleased with this<br />

decision and can now begin the planning<br />

for next summer’s big orienteering festival,<br />

O-<strong>Ringen</strong>”, says Jens Lindquist, project manager<br />

and acting CEO for O-<strong>Ringen</strong>.<br />

"For two summers now we have had to go<br />

without the fantastic orienteering adventure<br />

that is O-<strong>Ringen</strong> and the sense of community<br />

that it creates. For two summers we<br />

have had to postpone not only O-<strong>Ringen</strong> in<br />

Uppsala but also missed other big competitions<br />

such as 10-mila and 25-manna<br />

that were not able to take lace in Sweden.<br />

As the restrictions are finally being lifted,<br />

the organisers of these events can finally<br />

get started with some serious planning and<br />

begin to take place again."<br />

"We can’t wait to welcome orienteers to<br />

O-<strong>Ringen</strong> again. We have had a really tough<br />

time with two cancelled events, but now we<br />

can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel<br />

and gather some serious momentum in<br />

the planning again” explains Jens Lindquist,<br />

project manager for O-<strong>Ringen</strong> Uppsala.<br />

Jens and the organising clubs in Uppsala<br />

are working towards welcoming orienteers<br />

from all over the world next summer. It is<br />

already possible to enter via the O-<strong>Ringen</strong><br />

homepage to secure your place at O-<strong>Ringen</strong><br />

- the world’s largest orienteering adventure -<br />

next summer.<br />

We are<br />

obviously<br />

really<br />

pleased<br />

with this<br />

decision<br />

Kan spindeltråd rädda världen?<br />

Visste du att spindeltråd skulle kunna<br />

stoppa en jumbojet i luften? Och att<br />

Spindelmannens tråd skulle hålla även<br />

utan stunttricks?<br />

Anna Rising, professor i veterinärmedicinsk<br />

biokemi vid SLU, Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet,<br />

och forskare vid Karolinska institutet, forskar på<br />

konstgjord spindeltråd och dess många användningsområden.<br />

Vi tog ett snack med henne för att<br />

höra hur hon hamnade i detta spindelnät.<br />

Hej Anna! Hur kommer det sig att du började<br />

forska kring spindlar och spindeltråd?<br />

Det var lite av en slump. Jag var färdigutbildad<br />

veterinär, men ville forska och letade efter projekt.<br />

Då hittade jag en doktorandplats på SLU<br />

som var ett EU-projekt som syftade till att ta<br />

fram konstgjord spindeltråd. Mitt projekt var att<br />

använda spindeltråden till ortopediska implantat;<br />

t.ex. senor och ligament. Jag insåg snabbt att det<br />

saknades kunskap kring konstgjord spindeltråd<br />

och att man faktiskt aldrig förut hade lyckats ta<br />

fram det. Mina efterforskningar kring spindeltråd<br />

tog mig ut i vildmarken i Sydafrika där jag fångade<br />

hundra spindlar av en art som spinner den<br />

starkaste tråden och vars tråd inte drar ihop sig<br />

av vatten, något som var viktigt för ett material<br />

avsett för ortopediska implantat. Vi använder fortfarande<br />

DNA från dessa spindlar i vår forskning.<br />

Forskningen visade sig även vara användbar<br />

inom andra områden än ortopediska implantat.<br />

Bland annat har vi genom att härma hur spindeln<br />

producerar sin tråd kunnat ta fram vissa typer av<br />

läkemedel på ett mer effektivt sätt, vilket bl.a. kan<br />

ha betydelse för nyfödda barn med andningssvårigheter.<br />

Vilken är din största forskningstriumf?<br />

Att vi lyckades! Ingen hade någonsin gjort<br />

det tidigare. Detta var första gången som det<br />

lyckades. Det var särskilt roligt att vi skapade<br />

spindeltråden utifrån grundvetenskapliga insikter,<br />

vi imiterade naturen. När man utforskar naturen<br />

kan man ofta hitta de mest otroliga lösningarna<br />

som vi faktiskt kan använda i samhället idag. Det<br />

vi forskade om har bidragit till något konkret och<br />

användbart som är till nytta för samhället på sikt.<br />

Orienteering<br />

Photo: Peter Holgersson<br />

O-<strong>Ringen</strong> Uppsala 2022 has a very concentrated concept<br />

without in any way renouncing the orienteering experience.<br />

This is possible because Uppsala has many urban nature<br />

reserves that has been preserved for outdoor life.<br />

The O-<strong>Ringen</strong> City is situated on Ultuna, 6<br />

km south of Uppsala city. It is easy to get to<br />

Uppsala by train, bus, airplane, boat or car.<br />

If you live on or near O-<strong>Ringen</strong> City, you<br />

have cycling distance to all of the stages (4-8<br />

km) and close to experiences and activities<br />

in Uppsala city and its surroundings. Bring<br />

your bike!<br />

Bicycle distance<br />

If you live on or near O-<strong>Ringen</strong> City camping,<br />

you have cycling distance to all of the stages<br />

(4-8 km) and close to experiences and activities<br />

in Uppsala city and its surroundings.<br />

Bicycle is an environmental and wise<br />

choice of means of transport in Uppsala. The<br />

short distances allow you to maximize your<br />

experiences during the days. So we really<br />

recommend that you bring your own bike or<br />

rent/borrow a such.<br />

As a complement, we will also offer transport<br />

by bus to all of our stages at the main<br />

arenas from the O-<strong>Ringen</strong> City.<br />

Satellite parking<br />

The satellite parking is located at the exit<br />

of the E4 Highway. From here, as a participant,<br />

you get a short and smooth bus ride<br />

to Arena Pattons hage for stages 1 and 2 in<br />

Nåsten, Arena Sävja for stage 3 in the north<br />

of Lunsen and Arena Flottsund for stages 4<br />

and 5 also in Lunsen.<br />

No parking is offered at the arenas.<br />

Trains from all directions<br />

stop in Uppsala, both<br />

long distance trains and<br />

comuter trains. The train<br />

stops at Uppsala resecentrum in the middle of<br />

the city from where you reach both the arenas<br />

and O-<strong>Ringen</strong> City with several city bus lines<br />

operating Uppsala. There are several buses that<br />

operate Uppsala with long-distance buses.<br />

Plane and boat<br />

Close to Uppsala there<br />

are two airports, Arlanda<br />

and Västerås airport.<br />

From Arlanda you can<br />

travel to Uppsala by commuter train or bus and<br />

from Västerås there are buses.<br />

There are also options to travel by ferry to<br />

Stockholm, Kapellskär or Grisslehamn. From<br />

here it is about an hour's journey to Uppsala,<br />

by car or bus.<br />

Car<br />

Uppsala is close to most people<br />

and is easy to get to. If you travel<br />

with your own car and caravan /<br />

motorhome, you will probably turn<br />

off from the E4 or from one of the major country<br />

roads 55 or 72 and get to the O-<strong>Ringen</strong> City by<br />

Ultuna a little south of the city center.<br />

Camp ground<br />

O-<strong>Ringen</strong> City camp ground is situated on<br />

Ultuna, only 15 min (4 km) by bike and 4<br />

km with car from Uppsala Central station.<br />

O-<strong>Ringen</strong> square is located in the middle of<br />

the camping area and you can jump on the<br />

stage buses directly from here. Although the<br />

distance to all of the stages are 5–8 km so<br />

biking (or walking) is a good choice.<br />

The following service features<br />

are available at the campsite:<br />

• Toilets<br />

• Water and tables for dishwashing<br />

• Emptying of latrine<br />

Accommodation on hard surface is a<br />

shared simple accommodation form. You<br />

bring your own mattress, linen and towels.<br />

Toilets and showers are available. No access<br />

to kitchen.<br />

Private rentals<br />

Private individuals can post their accommodation<br />

for rent during O-<strong>Ringen</strong>. Our<br />

partner Nordic Travel ensures that the<br />

accommodation is conveyed smoothly and<br />

safely for both the landlord and the tenant.<br />

The objects are both villas and apartments as<br />

well as summer cottages and caravans in and<br />

around Uppsala and Knivsta.<br />

The supply is replenished as new items<br />

come in so if you do not find something at the<br />

moment please check back in a few weeks.<br />

The competition area consists of two parts.<br />

A rolling, wooded area with a significant<br />

climb closest to the arena, and an area with<br />

big and small houses a bit further away from<br />

the arena. Despite the short distance the<br />

track includes both woods, park, and city<br />

terrain. Fredrik Wigertz is responsible for<br />

the route planning of the Bagheera relay, and<br />

he promises that the runners will encounter<br />

typical challenges in the sprint orienteering.<br />

They need to find he control points<br />

fast and be able to choose fast and energy<br />

efficient routes. Long stretches of shrubbery<br />

and large buildings forces the runners to<br />

reconsider their route choices. There will<br />

also be simple forkings so they will need to<br />

maintain their own orienteering.<br />

The competitors are club teams. Clubs are<br />

welcome to build teams together if they cannot<br />

form a complete team within the club.<br />

STAGE 1 & 2<br />

NÅSTEN<br />

O-<strong>Ringen</strong> Uppsala 2022<br />

starts where<br />

it ended in 1980<br />

Last time O-<strong>Ringen</strong> was held in<br />

Uppsala was in 1980. Back then the<br />

competition was concluded with<br />

the last stage in the nature reserve<br />

Nåsten. Now, a little over 40 years<br />

later, we are starting O-<strong>Ringen</strong><br />

Uppsala 2022 where we last ended it.<br />

The arena is beautifully situated in Pattons<br />

hage just 15 minutes bicycle ride from the<br />

camping site at O-<strong>Ringen</strong> City. The name<br />

”Pattons hage” arose after the famous<br />

general George S. Patton visited in Sweden<br />

in 1945 and watched a Swedish military<br />

exercise at the site.<br />

Nåsten offers varied<br />

wilderness terrain close to the city<br />

The Nåsten nature reserve has large areas of<br />

old pine forest, ideal for runners, growing<br />

on small hills and marshy areas. But it also<br />

offers several other types of terrain. Close<br />

to our arena in Hågadalen there are hiking<br />

areas with many trails, short and steep,<br />

slopes and further out you get a sense of<br />

wilderness.<br />

There are intricate areas with short lines<br />

of sight and areas with many, sometimes<br />

very large, boulders.<br />

Sample leg from Nåsten, orange difficulty. The red<br />

route choice is the shortest while the green one is<br />

safer but quite a bit longer. The blue route is safe<br />

at first, but it will be somewhat harder to take the<br />

control points. Which route will you choose?<br />

The longer routes will test the skills of all<br />

orienteers.<br />

This can be seen in a larger <strong>number</strong><br />

of trails, especially close to our arena in<br />

Hågadalen. Both nearby and farther out you<br />

can get a feeling of real wilderness.<br />

Unlike Lunsen, Nåsten is characterized by a larger variation<br />

in the terrain. A few larger bogs are interspersed<br />

with intricate wilderness terrain in the eastern parts<br />

that is a reserve and therefore has been spared from<br />

forest exploitation for several decades. In all this there<br />

are denser areas, meadows, and flat rocks, and in<br />

the western parts also some aspects of forestry and<br />

agriculture. Runability is generally good to very good,<br />

largely because of the flat terrain, but it can be affected<br />

by vegetation, where especially wild rosemary in<br />

the larger bogs can impede the running speed. During a<br />

beautiful summer, the bogs can be entirely dry, and the<br />

opposite if the summer is wet. Some larger and smaller<br />

trails cross the reserve and there are some forest<br />

roads outside of it. Roads allow high running speeds,<br />

but you will need very supple ankles if you want to run<br />

fast on the smaller trails.<br />

Sprint in a classic environment. In the<br />

heart of the student areas of Uppsala<br />

with the newly built ”classic” Studenternas<br />

as arena we offer a high-class<br />

elite sprint competition with exciting<br />

path selection possibilities. The<br />

runners are offered a variety of terrain,<br />

from densely built-up student residential<br />

and union areas to parks and<br />

environments of cultural and historical<br />

significance.<br />

One of the most famous landmarks of<br />

Uppsala, the pink castle Vasaborgen from<br />

the 16th century is located in the middle of<br />

the area. The wooded city park Stadsparken,<br />

bordering the waters of Fyrisån, is also a<br />

part of the competition area.<br />

– The character of the competition<br />

area varies heavily and will test the skills<br />

of the elite runners. They need to be able<br />

to change pace and be ready for various<br />

kinds of orienteering to succeed, says route<br />

planner Kate Morrison. The arena will offer<br />

high class arena feeling with results on big<br />

screens and grandstands that lets everybody<br />

see the runners reach the finish line on the<br />

pitch at Studenternas. Outside the arena, in<br />

the nearby park, there is both a playground<br />

runability<br />

STAGE 3<br />

NORTHERN LUNSEN<br />

Äkta sport<br />

The similarities<br />

with stages 4 and 5<br />

are significant<br />

It consists of flat, detail rich pine<br />

woods on rocky ground with many<br />

larger and smaller marsh areas. The<br />

somewhat distinguishing feature<br />

of stage 3 is a more significant<br />

occurrence of spruce, especially in the<br />

lower lying areas closest to the arena.<br />

This does reduce the line of sight but<br />

without reducing runability. In these areas<br />

the underbrush is instead lower, consisting<br />

mainly of wild rosemary and bilberry sprigs.<br />

There is a large <strong>number</strong> of paths in the<br />

woods close to the built-up areas of Sävja,<br />

where the arena is located. But further<br />

south there is more and more wilderness.<br />

The area is completely unaffected by<br />

forestry. The longest legs will reach some<br />

areas with windthrows.<br />

OL STAGE 3 LONG DISTANCE<br />

Thursday July 28 2022<br />

The northern parts of Lunsen borders the<br />

residential area Sävja in southern Uppsala and<br />

is a popular area for outdoor activities that<br />

consists of a larger <strong>number</strong> of trails that might<br />

help on the easier routes but complicate things<br />

on the harder ones. The trick is to make the<br />

right choices and to know where you are. The<br />

longer and harder routes will reach a beautiful<br />

area in the eastern parts of Lunsen that are<br />

a bit more hilly than southern Lunsen where<br />

stages 4 and 5 will be decided.<br />

The ground is light to moderately hilly and<br />

the line of sight, as well as traversability, is<br />

mostly good.<br />

The arena for stage 3 is Sävja IP and<br />

consists of a couple of football pitches and<br />

several adjacent activity areas close to the<br />

This is more of<br />

a challenge for<br />

the mind than<br />

for the body<br />

STAGE 4 & 5<br />

SOUTHERN LUNSEN<br />

Lunsen - one of the<br />

finest orienteering<br />

areas in Sweden!<br />

The southern and middle parts of<br />

Lunsen are among the finest orienteering<br />

areas in the whole of Sweden<br />

and must be experienced. The terrain<br />

looks like something out of a fairy<br />

tale with a multitude of small hills,<br />

bogs filled with wild rosemary and flat<br />

rocks covered in reindeer lichen.<br />

Despite the proximity to Uppsala Lunsen<br />

mostly consists of untouched, pathless, wilderness.<br />

But in the area closest to the arenas<br />

in Sävja for stage 3 and Flottsund for stages<br />

4 and 5 there is a large <strong>number</strong> of trails that<br />

will be used for routes that require them.<br />

For the harder routes, the lightly rolling<br />

country creates a challenge that is more<br />

strenuous for the mind than for the body. It<br />

will, in other words, be exciting orienteering<br />

in fantastic and enjoyable terrain. Whether<br />

it is the finest terrain in Sweden or not is for<br />

you to decide.<br />

The two final OL-stages at O-<strong>Ringen</strong><br />

Uppsala 2022 have their arena at beautiful<br />

Flottsund where the Fyrisån river empties in<br />

Ekoln, the northernmost part of Lake Mälaren.<br />

In this area you will find beautiful walking<br />

areas and natural bathing places.<br />

Sample leg from Lunsen, orange difficulty. The red<br />

route choice is shorter while the green one is safer.<br />

All MTBO participants at O-<strong>Ringen</strong> Uppsala will<br />

use the Sportident Air+ system for contactless<br />

punching. Using SIAC brings a whole new<br />

dimension to MTBO and enhances the feeling<br />

of orienteering at full speed even more. Vital<br />

seconds can be earned when controls can be<br />

visited without stopping.<br />

MTBO takes place within<br />

cycling distance of O-<strong>Ringen</strong> City<br />

The MTBO competitions at O-<strong>Ringen</strong> Uppsala 2022 will be held in close<br />

proximity to Uppsala and O-<strong>Ringen</strong> City. All five stages are just a few<br />

kilometers from O-<strong>Ringen</strong> camping. Also, at four of the five stages the<br />

arena is shared with foot orienteering, which we hope will create a great<br />

atmosphere for competitors in both disciplines. There is therefore an<br />

opportunity to take part in both MTBO and foot O, as well as making it<br />

easier for families who want to participate in both disciplines.<br />

Stage 1<br />

Along Uppsala’s western edge you will find<br />

Hågadalen Nåsten, a rich and varied nature<br />

reserve. Within the nature reserve you’ll find<br />

agricultural landscapes, lush groves, dark forest<br />

areas, bare rocky terrain and swarming bogs.<br />

The reserve has been used by humans for millennia,<br />

so today you can enjoy habitats teaming<br />

with biodiversity, and also discover lots of exciting<br />

ancient remains. O-<strong>Ringen</strong> MTBO starts<br />

with a long distance race, with both route choice<br />

legs and more intensive orienteering. Technicality<br />

of the trails for riding varies substantially,<br />

from narrow trails on rocky tops, bridges over<br />

bogs, downhill sections, technical MTB trails,<br />

fast paved trails, and forest trails. The finish line<br />

is found at Arena Pattons Hage, the same venue<br />

as for the foot orienteering stage.<br />

PHOTO PETER HOLGERSSON<br />

Stage 2<br />

Vårdsätra forest is a small and beautiful forest<br />

in southern Uppsala. The forest is close<br />

to residential areas and is popular for outdoor<br />

recreation. The nature is rich and varied<br />

with coniferous forest, deciduous forest,<br />

hazel groves and old pastures. Almost all of<br />

our Swedish tree species and several foreign<br />

species grow here. In terms of cycling, it is<br />

mainly fast paved paths, but also forest paths<br />

and MTB tracks as well as asphalt in built<br />

up areas. Stage 2 is a middle distance race<br />

with a lot of route choice within a small and<br />

dense path network. As in stage 1, the finish<br />

is located at Arena Pattons Hage together<br />

with the foot orienteering.<br />

Stage 3<br />

Stadsskogen (”The city forest”) is situated in<br />

central Uppsala, just a kilometer from the<br />

castle. It is actually a park, but due to its size<br />

and character, it bears great resemblance to<br />

a typical Swedish mixed forest. Coniferous<br />

forest dominates, and the area has been a<br />

nature reserve since 2005. Stadsskogen is a<br />

popular outdoor recreation area for Uppsala<br />

residents. Stage 3 will be a sprint distance<br />

event in Stadsskogen's labyrinth of fast hard<br />

trails and narrow forest trails. Plentiful<br />

micro-route choices will ensure that it’s easy<br />

to get lost even though you are almost in the<br />

middle of the city. The finish line is found at<br />

arena Kåboängen, located in the northern<br />

part of Stadsskogen.<br />

Stage 4<br />

Norra Lunsen is a large and high-lying forest<br />

area. On barren rocky terrain, lean and<br />

sinewy pines grow with plenty of wetlands<br />

in between. Deciduous trees are in the clear<br />

minority, with only a few aspen and birch<br />

trees to be found within the mostly coniferous<br />

forest. The fourth stage in Lunsen will<br />

be a long distance race with route choice legs<br />

crossing a variety of different terrain types,<br />

including narrow trails inside Lunsen, dense<br />

path networks close to suburban areas, and<br />

pine forest trails towards Hågaån. The finish<br />

line is located at Arena Flottsund with the<br />

foot orienteering.<br />

Stage 5<br />

Årike Fyris is located along the Fyrisån river<br />

just south of Uppsala city. Along the western<br />

edge of the area are two of Uppsala ridge’s<br />

heights, Ultuna- and Sunnersta ridges. Ancient<br />

waterways run along the ridge and river. The<br />

ancient castle on Sunnersta ridge marks the<br />

important role of the Fyris river. The ridges<br />

also consist of valuable natural environments,<br />

rich in typical dry slope flora and sand-living<br />

insects. During the final stage chasing start,<br />

O-<strong>Ringen</strong> cyclists will encounter a completely<br />

different type of terrain: ridge terrain with<br />

short steep slopes up to 30-40 meters, as well<br />

as more flat sections and built up areas. A<br />

dense dirt, gravel and sand path network and<br />

route choice legs characterise the final middle<br />

distance race. The finish is the same as for<br />

stage 4, located at Arena Flottsund with the<br />

main O-<strong>Ringen</strong> foot events.<br />

EVENTS<br />

Next year, O-<strong>Ringen</strong> Uppsala starts early, already in<br />

February, with an online O-<strong>Ringen</strong> Torus competition.<br />

Digital TempO has been established as a fun and difficult<br />

competition during a time when we could not compete in<br />

ordinary competitions.<br />

It is therefore timely to introduce this competition also on the<br />

largest orienteering event in the world. Competing in this digital<br />

event will also give you a taste of the terrain before the summer<br />

event. Just like O-<strong>Ringen</strong>, the digital event will include 5 races,<br />

7–12 February. This schedule includes a free day, where perhaps we<br />

may provide a special event to discover Uppsala. For those of you<br />

that have never tried TempO, it is a challenge to quickly translate<br />

the map to the terrain and vice versa.<br />

TempO is therefore also an excellent practice for regular<br />

orienteering. The competition will mainly include forest course,<br />

similar to the ones during O-<strong>Ringen</strong> Uppsala, but also in the<br />

city. O-<strong>Ringen</strong> Torus will be arranged in collaboration with<br />

Torus (torus.yq.cz) and with quality controls from experienced<br />

organizers. Some kind of price will behold the winner, but more<br />

about prices and other practical information will be published on<br />

the social media of O-<strong>Ringen</strong>. However, you can already visit the<br />

Torus website to practice your skills in reading maps.<br />

FOOD & DRINK<br />

A lovely atmosphere and<br />

great food.<br />

Whether you want to eat a lot or a little, outside<br />

or inside, Uppsala has a wide range of bars and<br />

indoor & outdoor cafés.<br />

At destinationuppsala.se/guides you will find tips<br />

such as the best street food in town, tasteful coffee<br />

bars and all the inns, bodegas and brasseries in<br />

Uppsala that are worth a visit.<br />

pssst...<br />

There are over 140 outdoor cafés in Uppsala and<br />

just as many reasons to visit one of them. Eat and<br />

drink something while enjoying the sun for a while<br />

and watching people walking by. A great way to<br />

enjoy the atmosphere in Uppsala.<br />

pssst...<br />

Carl Linnaeus is one of the world’s most famous scientists. Nowhere else are<br />

there as many traces of him as in Uppsala. Walk along one of the Linnaeus<br />

trails to his summer residence in Linnaeus’ Hammarby, visit the Linnaeus<br />

Museum, which was his home, or enjoy the calm in the Linnaeus Garden – a<br />

green oasis in the middle of Uppsala. linneuppsala.se<br />

pssst...<br />

Just three kilometres from Uppsala city centre is the<br />

Gränbystaden Shopping Centre with over 160 shops,<br />

restaurants, cafés and other services. Here, among other<br />

things, is the first 4DX cinema auditorium in Sweden.<br />

NATURE<br />

Take it easy, in the middle of the<br />

city or just around the corner.<br />

Take a walk in the Årummet waterside development along<br />

the Fyris River. Relax in the City Garden or one of the other<br />

parks in the city centre. Only 15 minutes away, you will find<br />

bathing areas, hiking trails and hidden spots deep in the<br />

forest. Or how about a ride on the Lennakatten narrow-gauge<br />

heritage railway through the beautiful summer Uppland.<br />

A wealth of experiences.<br />

Uppsala’s attractions range from large-scale concerts and sports<br />

events to intimate gigs, exhibitions and displays. Throughout the<br />

summer, there are concerts and entertainment on the outdoor<br />

stage at Parksnäckan (“The Park Snail”) in the City Garden,<br />

where popular Swedish artistes and children’s favourites can<br />

often be heard.<br />

CULTURE & HISTORY<br />

A pink castle.<br />

Uppsala Castle was built by King Gustav Vasa in 1549 and has<br />

played a major role in our Swedish history. It has been the scene<br />

of several dramatic events involving bloodbaths, conspiracies,<br />

plots and murder, and not least the abdication of Queen Kristina,<br />

which took place here in 1654. Today, the castle is home to<br />

the County Governor, but also houses three exciting museums:<br />

Uppsala Art Museum, the House of Peace and Vasaborgen<br />

(Uppsala Castle Museum). You can also enjoy Uppsala’s best<br />

views from here with a roof-top walk on the castle roof.<br />

MIAOW!<br />

Do you know Peter-No-Tail? The famous cat lived in Uppsala<br />

and left his paw prints here. Nowadays, you can meet him in<br />

his play park, on guided walks and as a statue. Pussyfoot over<br />

his own pedestrian crossing to the district of Åsgränd, where he<br />

lived with his beloved Maja Gräddnos (Maya Cream Nose),<br />

but which was also home to Elaka Måns (Mean Magnus), his<br />

armour-bearers Bill & Bull and the other cats.<br />

BOOK TIPS <br />

More Pearls<br />

and Curiosities<br />

in Uppsala<br />

“Marvel at everything, even the most<br />

commonplace.” — “Omnia mirari<br />

etiam tritissilma” This motto of Carl<br />

Linneaus appears on a plate at the<br />

entrance to the Linneaus Garden on<br />

Svartbäcksgatan, Uppsala, Sweden.<br />

The motto has been a principle of<br />

authors John Ringh and Lars-Åke<br />

Skagegård as they wrote “Fler Pärlor<br />

och Märkvärdigheter i Uppsala”<br />

– “More Pearls and Curiosities<br />

in Uppsala.”<br />

When you are in Uppsala for the O-<strong>Ringen</strong>,<br />

in the summer of 2022, the classic sights of<br />

the city will be readily apparent. John and<br />

Lars-Åke have written a guide to unexpected<br />

and less known places in Uppsala.<br />

The book introduces readers to a “gasque,”<br />

a traditional party at a Studentnation.<br />

Readers may be horrified by Dalpelle’s<br />

execution, then enjoy the Skytteanska<br />

Garden, along with fika at Café Uroxen.<br />

The authors move freely among archbishops,<br />

poets, bandy players, princes, storytellers,<br />

and a cement queen.<br />

These are a few of the “pearls” to which<br />

the reader will be introduced. The history of<br />

trains to Uppsala and through the Uppland<br />

countryside is covered in some detail. Places<br />

like Engelska Parken, Seminarieparken,<br />

Galgbacken Domarringen, and the Skytteanska<br />

Trädgarden are introduced.<br />

Other Uppsala curiosities discussed<br />

include the mosaic in Gottsunda Church,<br />

the Prince Gustaf statue outside Carolina<br />

Rediviva, and the artwork Poetisk viloplats/<br />

Poetic Resting Place in Tullgarnsparken.<br />

You’ll find “Fler Pärlor & Märkvärdigheter<br />

i Uppsala” to be an invaluable guide to<br />

the commonplace and the unexpected in<br />

Uppsala, during the O-<strong>Ringen</strong> week and any<br />

other time.<br />

PÅ TURNÉ <br />

O-<strong>Ringen</strong> on tour<br />

During the late summer and autumn,<br />

O-<strong>Ringen</strong> has been doing O-<strong>Ringen</strong><br />

on Tour with our partner Suzuki. The<br />

tour is ongoing so we will show up at<br />

upcoming events as well.<br />

The purpose is to meet all of you who usually<br />

participate at O-<strong>Ringen</strong> and get to talk<br />

about what you look forward to in Uppsala<br />

and at our future O-<strong>Ringen</strong> destinations,<br />

discuss how we can develop O-<strong>Ringen</strong> together<br />

and to simply be at the competitions<br />

and at the arenas again.<br />

So far we have visited the World Cup in Idre,<br />

the Youth Championships in Falköping, the<br />

Swedish Championships in Strömstad and<br />

Daladubbeln.<br />

On November 13-14, we are at the<br />

O-event in Borås. Hope to see you there!<br />

Vi stämplar in.<br />

Hemdagars (“Home"-<strong>Ringen</strong>)<br />

a success among Swedish clubs<br />

Vi har bestämt oss, vi är överens. Kartan är ritad,<br />

kompassen inställd.<br />

Målet är att bli en grön fabrik.<br />

As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, O-<strong>Ringen</strong> has been cancelled two<br />

summers in a row. This summer, “Hemdagars”, a kind of "Home-<strong>Ringen</strong>” concept,<br />

was created to provide participants with an opportunity to go orienteering<br />

and feel connected to the O-<strong>Ringen</strong> community.<br />

The concept was a great success - towns<br />

and orienteering clubs throughout Sweden<br />

arranged their own “Hemdagars” events,<br />

where courses were planned in local forests<br />

that were appreciated by many participants.<br />

“We wanted to contribute opportunities<br />

for physical activity. The most important<br />

for us was that people could get out and<br />

walk, jog or run an orienteering course”, says<br />

38 O-RINGEN MAGAZINE NR 1 • <strong>2021</strong><br />

Niclas Lidström, project manager of “Hemdagars”.<br />

The result of “Hemdagars” was really<br />

great; it was appreciated by clubs throughout<br />

the country. Thanks to our main sponsors<br />

Alewalds, Biltema, Svenska Krämfabriken,<br />

Silva and Bagheera we were able to offer<br />

plenty of lotter prizes to lucky winners<br />

Ett liv närmare naturen fick<br />

Karna att flytta till Åre.<br />

Nu laddar hon inför<br />

O-<strong>Ringen</strong> 2023.<br />

Hösten 2018 gick Karna Thorsson runt hemma<br />

i Uppsala och längtade efter en förändring. En<br />

önskan om att komma närmare fjällen, lära sig<br />

att åka skidor och få springa mer i bergsmiljö.<br />

När hon fick se att Åre kommuns samhällsbyggnadskontor<br />

sökte nya medarbetare tog<br />

det inte lång tid innan ansökan var inskickad.<br />

Några veckor senare fick hon veta att hon var<br />

kallad på intervju och resten är historia.<br />

Idag arbetar Karna som planarkitekt på Åre<br />

kommun. Tillsammans med sina kollegor utvecklar<br />

hon detaljplaner som talar om hur<br />

mark- och vattenområden får och inte får användas<br />

i kommunen. Detaljplanerna är viktiga<br />

instrument för en hållbar och långsiktig planering<br />

av samhället.<br />

”<br />

Jag trivs jättebra på mitt nya<br />

jobb. Sedan är det så lyxigt att ha<br />

så fantastisk natur direkt utanför<br />

dörren när man slutat för dagen”<br />

Raka motsatsen mot Uppsala<br />

Karna är ett välkänt ansikte för många orienterare<br />

och tävlar sedan flera år tillbaka för OK<br />

Linné i Uppsala. Idag är hon en glad och aktiv<br />

motionär där träningen styrs utifrån dagsform<br />

och känsla. Sedan flytten till Åre har hon börjat<br />

träna med Åre OK, som är den enda orienteringsklubben<br />

i kommunen.<br />

– Orienteringen i Åre skiljer sig väldigt mycket<br />

från det jag är van vid i Uppsala. Här är det oftast<br />

väldigt kuperat med långa sluttningar och<br />

få detaljer. Alltså raka motsatsen mot Uppsala,<br />

berättar Karna.<br />

Ser fram emot orienteringsfesten<br />

O-<strong>Ringen</strong> arrangeras som bekant i Åre 2023<br />

och Karna ser fram emot att var en del av arrangörsstaben.<br />

Hon med i gruppen som arbetar<br />

med förberedelserna inför elitklassernas<br />

sprintetapp i Åre by.<br />

– Om någon frågar mig vart man ska åka och<br />

bada på aktivitetsdagen så vet jag i alla fall vad<br />

jag ska svara. Mitt bästa tips är att åka upp till<br />

Ullådalen och ta ett dopp i Ullån. Det är väldigt<br />

uppfriskande!<br />

O-<strong>Ringen</strong> in Åre 2023<br />

It has been an intensive summer preparing for O-<strong>Ringen</strong> Åre 2023, making the<br />

most of the snow-free months. With the pandemic forcing postponement of the<br />

event by two years, we lost access to the area around Åre Björnen, where two<br />

stages were planned to take place. Forthcoming construction works prohibit<br />

use of this arena in 2023.<br />

“Together with the course planners we<br />

begun to explore the areas that had potential<br />

to host one or two stages and quickly found<br />

a solution that we are satisfied with”, says<br />

Magnus Johansson, competition director for<br />

O-<strong>Ringen</strong> in Åre.<br />

The Norwegian course planners proposed<br />

an additional stage in Ånn, and one stage in<br />

Järpen. This means that the Åre event will<br />

take place as follows:<br />

• Stage 1 Trillevallen, long<br />

• Stage 2 Trillevallen, long<br />

• Stage 3 Järpen, middle<br />

• Stage 4 Ånn, middle<br />

• Stage 5 Ånn, long<br />

“The area in Ånn offers good terrain to<br />

run in and we think that it is big enough to<br />

host two stages”, explains Magnus Johansson.<br />

That Järpen was offered as a solution was<br />

thanks to a discussion in the early planning<br />

stages that were put to one side. Now those<br />

plans for a stage in Järpen will come to<br />

fruition, although the stage will take place<br />

higher up the hillside than the area near the<br />

village that was originally considered. The<br />

area offers high quality terrain that will work<br />

well for a middle race.<br />

“Parts of this area offer really nice terrain;<br />

I would honestly say among the best you will<br />

find not only in Järpen but in the Jämtland<br />

mountains. I am really satisfied with the<br />

solution to hold a stage in Järpen and we<br />

have received really positive things from<br />

both the mappers and the course planners”<br />

says Magnus.<br />

Magnus Johansson<br />

Competition director<br />

O-<strong>Ringen</strong> Åre 2023<br />

The mappers Jerker Boman and Kalle Engblom<br />

have now spent just over a month in<br />

the area working on a new map. Although an<br />

older map exists, it had not been updated for<br />

several years and so the mapping duo were<br />

faced with a huge job to draw the new map.<br />

Even Ånn has been visited by our mapping<br />

team this summer. Two Czech mappers<br />

visited in order to finish the Ånn map, a job<br />

that was completed thanks to the lifting of<br />

travel restrictions permitting other European<br />

citizens to travel to Sweden this summer.<br />

“It was fun to be able to be here again<br />

and work on the map”, said Ales Hejna, who<br />

worked with Milan Bily to add the final<br />

missing details to the map in west Jämtland.<br />

This means that the majority of the mapping<br />

work is complete for the five stages in<br />

Ånn, Trillevallen and Järpen. Next summer<br />

the sprint map will be completed so that it is<br />

up to date with the latest construction work<br />

in Åre village.<br />

In other news, recruitment of volunteers for<br />

O-<strong>Ringen</strong> in Åre is ongoing. We are fortunate<br />

to have great support from Norwegian clubs<br />

in the Trondelag region who are now also<br />

permitted to travel to Sweden and Jämtland.<br />

For most of the past 18 months, coronavirus<br />

restrictions have prevented all Norwegian<br />

citizens from travelling to Sweden without the<br />

need to quarantine upon return to Norway.<br />

“It is great that our Norwegian course<br />

planners have finally had the chance to get<br />

out in the forests after 1.5 years without that<br />

opportunity” says Niclas Lidström, project<br />

manager of O-<strong>Ringen</strong> Åre.<br />

During the late autumn all the course<br />

planners and controllers will come together<br />

among other things go and check the starts<br />

and control sites in the Jämtland forests.<br />

Speaking of the Norwegians, this autumn<br />

the Norwegian clubs have also been visited<br />

by project manager Niclas Lidström to<br />

present the opportunities that O-<strong>Ringen</strong> can<br />

create for their organisations. There were<br />

happy faces all around when O-<strong>Ringen</strong> visited<br />

Wing OK, based just outside Trondheim,<br />

this August.<br />

Intensive work is ongoing to secure accommodation<br />

for all participants in Åre 2023. First<br />

and foremost accommodation is planned to<br />

be offered in holiday homes, apartments and<br />

similar ski accommodation. However, the<br />

possibility for campervan/motorhome and<br />

caravan parking is also being explored.<br />

“Next summer, when O-<strong>Ringen</strong> takes<br />

place in Uppsala, we will open the booking<br />

portal for cabins, apartments and other<br />

accommodation”, says Niclas Lidström,<br />

O-<strong>Ringen</strong> Åre project manager. “We will do<br />

our best to provide as much accommodation<br />

as possible”.<br />

återvinns för att värma lokalerna<br />

och vattnet. Den första<br />

värmeåtervinningen installerade<br />

vi redan 1954, bageriet<br />

blev helt fossilfritt redan 2013.<br />

DIREKT<br />

FRÅN VÅRA LOKALA<br />

RÅGHJÄLTAR.<br />

Rågmjölet i vårt knäckebröd är<br />

inte bara garanterat svenskt,<br />

det får vi från bönder som<br />

Anton Öhlund utanför Hedemora<br />

– men aldrig längre bort<br />

än 34 mil från vår egen kvarn.<br />

Ja, vi har en egen kvarn så att<br />

rågen kan komma så direkt<br />

som möjligt från gårdarna till<br />

oss, utan att åka omvägar. Allt<br />

för att minimera transporter.<br />

INGET GÅR<br />

TILL SPILLO.<br />

Hållbarhet handlar också om<br />

att ta tillvara. Den lilla mängd<br />

degrester och brödspån som<br />

vi inte kan ta tillvara, skickar<br />

vi till en annan bonde här i<br />

Dalarna. Han har kor och<br />

de älskar knäckebröd i vilken<br />

form det än kommer.<br />

FRÅN 1817 IN<br />

I MORGONDAGEN.<br />

Leksands Knäckebröd började<br />

med gammelfarmors mormor<br />

som föddes 1817, bara ett stenkast<br />

från där vi har bageriet<br />

idag. Och receptet är exakt<br />

detsamma. Som du förstår är<br />

kvartalsekonomin inget för oss,<br />

vi räknar sekler. Precis som du,<br />

tänker vi mycket på vad vi<br />

lämnar efter oss till våra barn.<br />

Följ med oss på resan mot en<br />

fin framtid genom att konstant<br />

sänka den där siffran i lövet<br />

på paketet. Utan att vi någonsin<br />

gör avkall på smaken.<br />

VI KAN GÖRA SÅ<br />

MYCKET MER.<br />

Även fast vi tagit bort all onödig<br />

plast i vårt bageri och väljer<br />

svensk kartong (som är dyrare<br />

än den importerade) för att<br />

undvika onödiga transporter,<br />

så räcker det inte. Vi måste<br />

bli ännu bättre om vi ska ha en<br />

värld värd namnet att lämna<br />

över till kommande generationer.<br />

Det är ett konstant<br />

pågående arbete som vi gärna<br />

delar med oss av.<br />

Situation report from Jönköping!<br />

The clubs in the region are ready to work with O-<strong>Ringen</strong><br />

and Destination Jönköping to organize and arrange<br />

O-<strong>Ringen</strong> 2025: Annebergs GIF, Bodafors OK, Bottnaryds IF,<br />

Forserums SOK, IF Hallby SOK, IKHP Huskvarna, IK Vista,<br />

Jönköpings OK, Lekeryd-Svarttorps SK, Mullsjö SOK, SOK<br />

Aneby, Tenhults SOK, Ulricehamns OK, Vaggeryds SOK and<br />

SmOF.<br />

The decision to arrange O-<strong>Ringen</strong> here in 2023 (as the intention<br />

was before Covid-19) was made in December 2019. At that time,<br />

a club council was organized with Göran Carnander as chairman.<br />

Work soon started with a focus on finding a location for O-<strong>Ringen</strong><br />

City and all the stages. We knew from the very beginning that we<br />

wanted Elmia fairground with the beautiful view over lake Vättern<br />

as O-<strong>Ringen</strong> City.<br />

– Due to Covid-19 we will not be able to welcome you to<br />

Jönköping until 2025. We are now working hard to figure out where<br />

we want all the arenas, acquiring environmental permits and contacting<br />

landowners and hunters during this fall and winter so that<br />

we can hopefully present a concept next summer. This is to give us<br />

ample time to develop good maps for all disciplines, says Göran.<br />

What we already know about O-<strong>Ringen</strong> 2025 is that we are<br />

Jönköping by night.<br />

having a O-<strong>Ringen</strong> City around the Elmia fairgrounds and that the<br />

region offers varied terrain with the Vätterbranterna in the east, till<br />

terrain typical for Småland in the west and international terrain in<br />

the south. In addition to this terrain the region also offers a bounty<br />

of tourist attractions like moose parks, climbing, apple orchards,<br />

Store Mosse national park, Husqvarna factory museum, baths,<br />

and city. All this will give us a week 30 filled with activities during<br />

O-<strong>Ringen</strong> 2025!<br />

Description<br />

The course is in terrain with clear and connected features such as roads, larger paths, buildings and open land. The controls on a<br />

green course must always be placed on handrails and must provide reassurance that the competitor is following the correct route.<br />

Control features may be path bends, path junctions, telegraph posts, buildings or other clear features or objects.<br />

The terrain is the same as for green courses, i.e. clear and connected features, e.g. roads, larger paths, open land and buildings. The<br />

controls on a white course must mark only the end of one leg and the start of the next. The control features must therefore be easily<br />

identified and distinct. As well as green course features, controls on white courses may also be on e.g. boulders, crags, fences and<br />

similar features.<br />

Yellow courses can be in more difficult terrain but runnability and visibility must still be good. The terrain must have a connected<br />

network of roads, paths, fences, waterways, open areas etc. Control points may be on more difficult features, for example on the top<br />

of a very distinct hill, but must always have a clear attack point. There must be a clear catching feature behind controls.<br />

Orange and red courses must use runnable terrain, with gentler hills and forest, preferably with areas of cultivated land. Terrain<br />

details must be clear. Compared to green, white and yellow courses, more difficult control features may be used, for example larger<br />

re-entrants, distinct ridges, hills and crags. There must be a clear feature a maximum of 200 m before the control and a clear catching<br />

feature behind it.<br />

Same as for orange courses but you can encounter all types of terrain.<br />

All types of terrain may be used. Very physically tough terrain should be avoided. All types of control feature may be used. Compared<br />

to orange and red courses, purple courses place higher demands on, planning skills, choosing quick routes ahead of safe routes and<br />

finding controls without clear catching features behind them.<br />

On blue and black courses, the difficulty should always suit skilled orienteers, even if anyone can compete. The increased difficulty<br />

level compared to other courses is because more of the orienteering uses contour features, detailed terrain and smaller features.<br />

Same as for blue courses but you can encounter all types of terrain.<br />

MAIN CLASSES<br />

Our main classes with five days of competition attract the most<br />

participants. Main classes have assigned start times for stages 1-4. For<br />

our younger participants there are introductory and development<br />

classes; Introduction (Inskolning) and Youth (U-klass). In these you<br />

have open start times and get a result, but only Youth has a list of<br />

results. Everyone participating in the Introduction class gets a prize.<br />

The final stage is a chasing for all main classes, except Introduction,<br />

Youth and DH10 – DH12.<br />

SHORT CLASSES<br />

This is the competition for those who want a little more flexibility<br />

in start time and shorter courses, but who are at the same time<br />

attracted by the competition. Free start time means you can start<br />

whenever you want between 8.30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Chasing start<br />

is applied on stage 5.<br />

OPEN CLASSES<br />

Open Classes will allow you to select courses with a variety of<br />

lengths and difficulty levels, letting you challenge yourself or a<br />

friend. These are avaliable for Foot-O (12 classes) and MTBO<br />

(3 classes). Entry to Open Classes is not restricted by age or gender.<br />

The course lengths will be a little shorter when it is the middle<br />

distance for Foot-O on Friday. Every Open Class has open start<br />

times for each stage.<br />

MTBO CLASSES<br />

MTBO runs over five days and in 4 out of 5 days the arena is<br />

shared with the Foot-O. Assigned starting times for stage 1-4,<br />

followed by an exciting chasing start that will determine the<br />

overall winner on stage 5. MTBO is fast-paced and is very much<br />

about making the right path and making quick decisions. The<br />

map is similar to the one used in regular orienteering. The biggest<br />

difference is how paths and roads are shown on the map. The road<br />

and the path's ride are reported where you can simply say that the<br />

longer the lines on the map, the faster the path can be cycled.<br />

As before, it is allowed to double (introduced before O-<strong>Ringen</strong><br />

2019 in Kolmården) in both OL and MTBO. However, you may<br />

not duplicate with the intention of reconnoitering before participating<br />

in the other branch. If you participate in the Elite Tour, you<br />

may not participate in MTBO stage 4.<br />

TRAIL-O CLASSES<br />

In the Trail-O competition map knowledge is in focus. Each control<br />

has up to five alternate screens. You must remotely determine<br />

which screen is correctly placed according to the control ring<br />

on the map and the control description. You compete in a class<br />

determined by its difficulty level, rather than age and gender. The<br />

competition takes place in easily passable terrain, that is trails and<br />

roads that can be navigated by wheelchairs, bicycles, etc.<br />
