No Path, No Rules; The Wildest New Race – Alex Hutchinson
Rating: *** Decent
This article was a little bit different from the previous articles I have read. It's all about the thrill of the race through the perspective of a newcomer to the sport of orienteering.
Orienteering was first introduced to North America by teams at West Point and Quantico Marine Corps Base in the 1960's and flourished for a few decades until falling into obscurity. Alex Hutchinson finds himself enjoying orienteering a lot. Learning new things every second while running the course. He describes all about his adventure and his thoughts on the sport which is rapidly growing in popularity.
I did not learn much reading this article however it was interesting. I recommend this article for everyone who wants to read something exciting and also for those who want to learn more about the sport of orienteering.
