Started today in Austria, bunch of runners with Orienteering connections are racing.

I'm not finding start lists anywhere, just a statement in the FAQ that they'll be posted once finalized. I'm thinking there may be runners with x-c ski background as well.

Alex Lawson, for one, who races professionally for the Craftsbury Green Racing Project. I believe she is racing the up/down race?

For Canada, Anne-Marie Comeau went to the 2018 Olympics for x-c, and almost made the team before that, but now is focused on trail running. She was 14th I saw today in the Uphill race.

Quite many orienteers from Switzerland:
Judith Wyder, Nathalia Gemperle, Fabian Aebersold, Jonas Soldini, Mathieu Bührer (Junior), Loic Berger (Junior)
And of course AP‘s Kris Jones, and just saw Cathrine Taylor as well.

Also Sasha Chepelin for the GB orienteering contingent, in addition to Kris and Cat.

Plus Tove appears to be Sweden's only runner in the 'Mountain Classic Senior'.

Ewan Shingler - Australia is on one of the lists
Jun 8, 2023 6:44 AM # 
And Alastair George - Australia ran in the vertical k yesterday (Go Ewan in the classic on Saturday!)
Jun 8, 2023 7:57 PM # 
Wow, silver for Judith Wyder today!
Jun 8, 2023 9:19 PM # 
And team gold for a GB team including Kris, Sasha and (extremely) occasional orienteer Jon Albon.

The Natalia vs Tove battle on Saturday should be fun - one month before a similarly Alpine WOC.
Jun 11, 2023 9:33 PM # 
Silver for Tove, with a clear minute either side of her. Natalia 15th, five minutes down.
