Training 18/10

14 Okt

Welcome to KOT´s weekly activity!

This week we will practice night orienteering again as it seems to be a popular activity. Meeting time is 18.00 at KTH Hallen, Thursday 18/10.  This week we do increase difficulty a bit with not allowing powerful headlights (well if you have nothing else it is fine). This will gives you an opportunity to test what you´ll experience next week when just running with a small, tiny flashlight in your hand.  The orienteering course will be at the maximum 5 kilometres. Furthermore, we will end the training with a workout session of the easy kind, to improve strength and flexibility, which can be helpful when running in rough terrain.

It is not too late to sign up for NSM in Trondheim in two weeks. We are already six participants – great!!! You can sign up directly under this Link and fill in the form we sent out. Please note entrance fee from 15/10 and on will be +200 NOK compared to earlier registration.

Hope to see on Thursday!

NSM 2018 :)

10 Okt

We have mentioned this competition for a while, and now it´s finally time for registration. This legendary event is once again arranged by NTNUI in Norway. All activities, time schedules etc. for this weekend can be found here . Event will take place 2-4:th of November in Trondheim.

For us in KOT, plan is to travel there early Friday to be able to arrive and run the night sprint at friday night. We start going back home after lunch at Sunday and will be back around 10-12 PM.

Cost for this weekend will be approximately 830 NOK +travel expenses (calculate with about 800-1000 kr per person for travelling)

We usually run in a masquerade class (Party Animals) on Saturday, which means that we need to do some preparations in terms of clothes and costumes so that we easily find each other in the big forest of Trondheim :) . Under the tab ”Fest” on the homepage, there are some pictures of earlier years and the costumes that were used then. There is also some information to find under the tab ”Tävling” on the homepage.
Remember this is not an orienteering competition for elite runners, which means that this is open to all students interested in having a fun weekend in the forest of Norway!

Here  you find a link to a google sheet, where you sign up if you are interested. We need to have an answer at the latest on Saturday 13/10, if you are interested in attending!

I guess there are several questions unanswered – you can send us questions on Facebook, to our email or over the phone (0707208881) to ask whatever it might be. Or just chat with us tomorrow night at the training.

See you!

Kot Training 11/10 and upcoming events!!

7 Okt

Welcome to KOT´s weekly activity!

This week we will practice night orienteering for the first time this autumn –  it´ll be awesome!!! Meeting time is 18.15. The courses will be of the easy kind, as it might be a bit strange to do orienteering in the dark for you who haven´t  tried it before! If you have a flashlight or headlight it is very good to bring it. We have at least five headlights that you can borrow too, so don´t hesitate even if you don´t own one yourself!
(If you want to buy one, we can recommend XXL or Decathlon. Wide assortment for both easy and professional use)

In about two weeks there is an event called Pampas Night, arranged at dusk in central Stockholm. It is a sprint relay, so as a participant you only run 2-3 km per person. We´ll compete with at least one team.
You have probably heard us talking about this event before, or seen some info on the homepage about it. It takes place Wednesday 24th of October, starting at 18.00 outside Karlberg´s Palace. There will be some well-tasting swedish Glögg (Glühwein) and gingerbread for participants in our team too :). Please sign up by filling in this form so that we know how many of you that are interested in running. And don´t forget to ask whatever we miss to inform about here.

We finally made a chat group at Facebook too, so that we can easier synchronize issues and do more spontaneous activities. This group also gives you all opportunity to share and invite to other training / activities with friends in KOT. We´ll remind about it further on too.

Hope to see on Thursday!

KOT Training 4/10

30 Sep

Welcome to KOT´s weekly activity!

This week we will go back and run from KTH-hallen as before. Meeting time is 17.45. We will do regular distance running and the plan is to run in between 5-12 km depending on shape and previous experience. We run mostly on paths and small roads.

After the running activity, we thought of celebrating ”kanelbullens dag” (Cinnamon bun´s Day) by taking a short break together and discuss upcoming events like the Nordic Student championship in Orienteering). And of course enjoy a lot of buns together!

Hope to see you all on Thursday! :)

Welcome to KOT´s weekly activity!

This week, we will meet at 17.45 at Hagaparken tennis court to enjoy some orienteering. (See link for location).  From KTH it´s possible to go there by bus, but quicker just to walk there.

There will be two courses with different length and difficulty.  We meet a little bit earlier to be back before it´s dark.

Hope to see you on Wednesday! :)

9 Sep

Welcome to KOT´s weekly training!
We will gather for our second training at KTH-Hallen on WEDNESDAY September 12th at 18:00.

We´ll continue with orienteering following week and benefit from daylight and summerfeeling :). We will, as last week, help you get started with orienteering before handing out the maps and sending you off to the forest. There will be two different courses, one shorter for beginners and a longer one for more eager runners.  You can run the course alone, with a friend, or as a group – as long as you have fun!
You need sports clothes, water bottle, compass (if applicable) and a paddle lock with you. Backpacks can be left with us or locked in at KTH hallen.

Hope to see you there – whether you’re a beginner or a pro!

KOT Startup Training and BBQ

2 Sep

Welcome to train and run with KOT this autumn :) !

Kongliga Orienterings Teknologerna KOT is a KTH student sport association organizing orienteering and running training on a weekly basis. For those of you who haven´t experienced KTH and training opportunities before, we are a team of curious and humble students that loves to train together rather than on our own.

We will start up with our first training at KTH Hallen on Tuesday September 4th at 18:00, with orienteering .
There will be two different courses to choose between depending on your prior knowledge of orienteering. We will provide a brief introduction to orienteering as a sport before handing out the maps and sending you off to the forest. You can go the course alone or with a friend(s), as long as you have fun! We will help you to get started and also be there to see that everyone finds their way back. You need sports clothes and a water bottle with you. Backpacks can be left with us or locked in at KTH hallen.

When you´re done in the forest – we have prepared a smaller BBQ that is free for all runners!

If you want to learn more about orienteering and prepare a bit on your own, please see this educational link from Swedish federation of orienteering.

Hope to see you there – whether you´re a beginner or a pro!!!

Summer competition!

1 Jul

Hi,

hope you´re all somewhat excited to run proper orienteering again :).

We´ll run Ravinen´s competition on Tuesday (3/7) this week, at Hellasgården, Nacka.  Here´s the link for the competition once again: https://eventor.orientering.se/Events/Show/22438
Bus 401 from Slussen will be the one to catch.

As I guess nobody has signed up for all three days, which was the only possibility online, we need to sign up for a course at the arena (You choose which difficulty and length you prefer when signing up).

Start is open until 20.00 on Tuesday, but I suggest that we meet there in good time before deadline. 19.00 outside Hellasgården would be good reference.

If you can´t find the way or don´t find us at competition center, my number is +46707208881‬.

Hope to see you on Tuesday!

Summer training !

24 Jun

Hi Everyone!

After a wonderful and hot pre-summer there is time for another chance to run and have fun together!
We´ll meet at KTH-Hallen on Wednesday (27:th of June) this week at 18.30. The plan is to run around 10-12 km, together. I´ll bring maps to shape up orienteering skills and to get used to run with a map in the hands (so we won´t run any difficult orienteering course).

Next week there is a competition called Ravinen 3-kvällars that will be held in the surrounding  of Stockholm. Let me know if any of you are interested in participating. It is held after work, just like Stockholm City Cup. This is instead of sprint courses, regular distance, but with possibility to choose difficulty upon registration at the arena.
I will run one or two of the three nights.
Please see following link for more info:  https://eventor.orientering.se/Documents/Event/40793/2/Inbjudan

Hope to see you who are still in Stockholm at Wednesday!

Hej!

I morgon är det dags för första etappen av Stockholm city cup! Startlistan ligger uppe på eventor, så gå gärna in och kolla när du startar. Du hittar också information om tävlingen om du läser tävlings-PM. Har du missat att anmäla dig till tävlingen kan du göra det på plats på arenan fram till kl 19.00.

Tävlingsarenan är i Högalidsparken och du tar dig lättast dit med röda linjens tunnelbana och går av i Hornstull. Vi i KOT samlas vid Högalidsparkens tunnelbaneuppgång kl 18.15 och går sedan gemensamt till arenan. Hinner du inte i tid till dess går det bra att sluta upp på tävlingsarenan i Högalidsparken.

Ta med egna säkerhetsnålar då alla startande bär nummerlapp, och arrangören inte tillhandahåller säkerhetsnålar.

Skulle det vara något är mitt nummer +46703976841.

På onsdag nästa vecka, 23/5, går andra etappen av Stockholm city cup i Farsta centrum. Anmälan kan göras fram till på söndag via Eventor (om du tillhör en svensk orienteringsklubb), annars får du maila arrangören på  sekretariat@stockholmcitycup.se. Skriv ditt namn, sport ident-nummer (om du har), när du vill starta (kl 19.00-19.30), vilken klass du vill ställa upp i (H17- om du är kille och D17- om du är tjej) och att du vill anmäla dig till etapp 2. Anmäler du dig via mail måste du göra det senast i morgon, omsdag, kl 18.00. Missar du att anmäla dig i tid går det bra att anmäla sig till tävlingen på plats på arenan, men startavgiften blir då 170 kr istället för 115 kr.

Ses i morgon!

Stockholm city cup, etapp 1 //Stockholm city cup, stage 1

8 Maj

Hej!

På onsdag nästa vecka, 16/5, är första etappen av Stockholm city cup, en orienteringscup där man under tre onsdagskvällar i maj tävlar i sprint-orientering. Banorna är med andra ord ganska korta (ca 3 km) och går i park- stadsmiljö, så har du aldrig sprungit en orienteringstävling är det här ett perfekt tillfälle att testa på. Vi hjälper till och förklarar hur det går till. Resultaten från de tre tävlingarna läggs sedan i hop till ett sammanlagt resultat, men det går självklart bra att vara med på bara en eller två deltävlingar också! På onsdag nästa vecka går första deltävlingen i Högalidsparken.

Några dagar innan tävlingen blir man som anmäld tilldelad en starttid. Vid anmälan kan man önska vilken tid man vill starta, och vill du starta i samma startintervall som resten av KOT ska du önska att komma i startintervallet 19.00-19.30.

Vid svenska orienteringstävlingar används ett elektroniskt system för tidtagning, där du som deltagare måste ha en ”bricka”/sport ident. Har du ingen egen kan du hyra av arrangören för 30 kr.

Är du medlem i en svensk orienteringsklubb anmäler du dig via Eventor senast på söndag 13/5. Saknar du svensk klubbtillhörighet kan du anmäla dig via mail till sekretariat@stockholmcitycup.se, senast i morgon onsdag 9/5, kl 18.00. Ange ditt namn, ditt sport ident-nummer (om du har en), vilket startintervall du vill starta i (19.00-19.30), vilken klass du vill ställa upp i (H17- om du är kille och D17- om du är tjej) och att du vill anmäla dig till etapp 1.

Missar du att anmäla dig i tid går det bra att anmäla sig till tävlingen på plats på arenan, men startavgiften blir då 170 kr istället för 115 kr.

Vill du läsa mer om tävlingen kan du göra det här

Ses!

Hej!

Wednesday next week, 16/5, the first stage of Stockholm city cup will take place. This is a cup in short distance orienteering where you run about 3 k’s in city area. Even though it’s a cup it’s okay to just enter one or two of the stages. If you have never entered an orienteering competition before we will help you and tell you how it works. The coming Wednesday is Stockholm city cup in Högalidsparken.

A couple of days before the competition there will be a start list published. When you sign up for the race you can ask for when to start. If you want to start with the rest of us in KOT, you should ask to start between 19.00-19.30.

In Swedish orienteering courses we use an electronic system for timing. For that we use something called a sport ident. If you do not have one, you may rent one from the competition for 30 kr.

To sign up for the race you have to email sekretariat@stockholmcitycup.se, and tell them your name, your sport ident-number (if you have one), when you wish to start (19.00-19.30), and which class you want to enter (H17- if you are a boy and D17- if you are a girl) and that you want to enter stage 1. To sign up via mail you have to do it before 9/5 at 18.00. You can also sing up at the arena, but then the entrence fee will be 170 kr instead of 115 kr.

See you!

Vi samlas vid Bergshamra tunnelbanestation, uppgång Bergshamra centrum, kl 17.30. Hinner du inte i tid går det bra att ringa eller smsa mig på på tfn +46703976841, alternativt leta dig till Kungshamravägen 43B

Heej!

Tomorrow, tuesday,  we will do orientering in Bergshamra. There will be four different courses between 1 and 2 k’s. The courses are not that difficult so that every one can join the training.

We will meet at Bergshamra metro station, exit Bergshamra centrum, at 17.30. If you are running late for the meet-up, just call or text me, +46703976841, or navigate to Kungshamravägen 43B
