ICE-O has been held every year since 2010. Hekla is the only orienteering club in Iceland. They have 50 members. The first ICE-O had 25 competitrts and is slowly growing. This year there were 118 competitors from 17 countries.The maps have been made by Danish orienteers. The competition is very well organised and everyone is very friendly. The events were all close to Reykjavik and the organisers arranged for bus transport to and from all the events from the city centre. On Friday evening the sprint race began the weekend. It was a straightforward course with one or two good route choices. Most of the controls were in small park areas with large lava cliffs, boulders, knolls and depressions so detailed map reading was required. I was having a good run until I left 15 when (my foot injury was hurting) I lost oncentration and exited the control in the wrong direction. I though I was running along the building to the NE and got a big surprise when I turned the corner and arrived in the event car park - oops. My error lost me 2 minutes and 3rd place.
