OL Bremgarten 2020

„Hurrying Slowly“

Welcome to the National Orienteering Weekend in Bremgarten bei Bern in spring 2020!

From 4th to 5th April 2020, the Swiss orienteering family is gathering in Bremgarten bei Bern. Around 1500 runners of all ages will compete at each of the two national orienteering competitions.

On Saturday, a Middle distance race will take place in the pretty forest of Löörwald-Riederenwald. Entitled as 50th Berner Einzel-OL, for all classes a pair-start race – first time ever in Switzerland – with forked loops will be organized. Careful map reading at high running speed is required while in close contact with co-competitors.

On Sunday, entitled as the 60th Hindelbanker OL, a Sprint competition is planned in the village of Bremgarten, where tricky residential areas, the steep slopes of the river Aare and challenging route choices are awaiting you.

The same day, entitled as the 12th Simone-Niggli-Challenge, Elite (DE and HE) and Junior runners (D20 and H20) will compete in a Knock-Out Sprint, the World Orienteering Championships‘ newest competition format. Compete on the courses of our mapper, multiple Sprint-World Champion and Bremgarten resident Daniel Hubmann!

A triple of «Hurrying Slowly»,  according to old Bernese saying !
