Experience the secrets of Danish nature in AQUA, the lokal aquarium and animalpark.

At AQUA, you can meet the Danish animals. All the animals you know so well but have never met! Witness the joyful play of the otters, the badger in its burrow and the stork in its nest. Look into the eyes of the ferocious pike and help the zookeeper handfeed the fish in the touch-tank. Every day you can hear the exciting stories of Danish nature, while the animals are being fed, and spend hours playing on our popular playgrounds.

Succesfully completed testraces

Submitted by Camilla Bevensee on Tue, 11/6/2019 - 16:13

A weekend with testraces is succesfully completed, both for the participants and the organizers.

With runners from many nations, the competiton was tough especially in the W20 and M20 classes. There were many great performances and the races were also a good opportunity for the runners to match themselves to the international junior top level, as several top 10 runners from last year's JWOC was running the races. 

Both the Danish, Finnish, Czech and British teams will be selected based on the races, and the coaches will in the coming days have a difficult job of doing this. 

We hope that everyone had a good experience racing with us and got to go home with some extra motivation for coming back in four weeks. Otherwise, the entry for the JWOC Tour is still open. Check the menu above to enter.

See some pictures from the races here.

En weekend med testløb er veloverstået, både for deltagere og arrangørers vedkommende. 

Med løbere fra mange af de store o-nationer, var konkurrencen hård. især i H/D 20 klasserne. Der blevet lavet mange gode præstationer og løbene var også en god mulighed for løberne, for at sammenligne dem selv med toppen af det internationale junior felt, da flere af JWOC 2018's top 10 løbere deltog ved løbene. 

Både for de danske, finske, tjekkiske og britiske landshold, var løbene udtagelsesløb og de respektive trænere står i de næste dage over for en hård opgave med at udvælge de 6 herrer og 6 damer, der skal løbe i terrænerne omkring Silkeborg og i Aarhus igen, om fire uger. 

Vi håber at alle havde en god oplevelse og kan tage en ekstra portion motivation med hjem frem mod mesterskabet. Og ellers er tilmeldingen for JWOC Tour stadig åben. Tilmeldingen til Tour foregår via o-service. 

Billeder fra løbene kan ses her.

Problems with Eventor

Submitted by Dorthe Hansen on Wed, 15/5/2019 - 08:35

We are having problems with Eventor.

It has been shown to be possible to enter without being marked for accreditation, and for some, to enter after the deadline.

All nations will therefore receive a letter within a couple of days, where we will ask that you check that the entries are correct.

Who are your hosts?

Submitted by Camilla Bevensee on Fri, 3/5/2019 - 20:15
The organizing team have all the skills needed.

OK Pan Aarhus and Silkeborg Orienteringsklub
The clubs are the two largest clubs in Denmark, with a combined total of more than 600 members. Both clubs have many young runners, and have for many years set a high focus on training young people. Over time, both clubs have contributed many members to both junior and senior world championships teams.

Both clubs were involved in organising the senior World Championships in 2006, and have since organised various Danish championships and masses of local races.

The clubs’ members have the skills needed to arrange international championships, and also have easy access to participants’ views and attitudes. So we hope we will have put the event together in a way that will appear unique to the participants, both in sporting and social respects.

It is fantastic that many more than 200 members are prepared to use part of their summer holidays to contribute to organising JWOC 2019 and the JWOC Tour.

The Organising Committee hope that all volunteers will find that their contribution is important, that there is a good spirit and that we get to know our club colleagues in a new way.

When the organisers are having a good time together, we are convinced that this will have an impact on the participants’ experiences.

See you soon!
