The preparations for 25manna 2021

The organising clubs Täby OK, Attunda OK and Sundbybergs IK are in the midst of preparing and focusing on the planning and execution of hosting the 25manna relay and the middle distance event on 9th and 10th October. The currently on-going pandemic due to Covid-19 is, of course, affecting all facets of our planning efforts, and the organisers continue to monitor the pandemic closely.

The 25manna relay of 2021 is expected to be the 47th running of the 25manna relay since the 2020 event was cancelled. The 25manna relay has a long history of crowning the world’s best orienteering club and we hope that in 2021 that we again can crown the “world’s best club”.

As part of our preparations, we intend to soon publish the preliminary invitation for the 25manna relay, the 25manna middle distance competition and the Swedish League event.

The on-going pandemic affects all aspects of our lives, and the sport of orienteering is severely limited currently. The unknown factors of how the pandemic will continue to develop, and the delays of vaccine distribution are obvious factors that may hinder our planning efforts to host the 25manna relay weekend as we plan.

The organisers are in close co-operation with the 25manna association, the Stockholm Orienteering Federation (StOF) and the Swedish Orienteering Federation (SOFT) and continuously monitoring the authorities restrictions how to limit the spread of Covid-19. At the same time, we also need to keep in mind our own needs as organising clubs and the needs of the participating clubs who also need to plan for the 25manna relay weekend.

It is our intentions to finalize the decision whether or not 25manna 2021 will be held at the end of June. Therefore, the organizers urge any club planning for the weekend in terms of booking lodging and travel are non-binding financially.

Join the mapper Fredrik Ahnlén to the terrain of 25manna 2020!

“The forest in Flemingsberg has a unique feeling of wilderness to be this close to Stockholm”, says Fredrik. In our live broadcast from 8th April you get a glimpse of the terrain with open and beautiful hilltops. The broadcast with host Oskar Forsberg and mapper Fredrik Ahnlén is in Swedish but we will give you a couple of translations of Fredrik’s tips here:

Is it wise to run over the hills or around? If you are strong, there is usually not too much reason to go around. But on the rougher areas, I would say most runners can benefit from using easier runnability rather than going over all the hills.

What size of stones will be on the map? The norm says 1 m but I often try to use around 1,3 m. The stone you see here (at 30:10 min in the video) is not on the map. When we are just walking it might be obvious, but at running speed I’m not even sure you would notice it.

What is especially important to practice for this terrain? It’s not too different from what you usually meet at 25manna. But being strong in those shorter uphills is not a bad idea and keeping focus and direction on these open hilltop-areas like we have here (from 18:30 min in the video and on).
