Henry McNulty wins the Ultra Long!

Congratulations to Henry McNulty for his fantastic effort at the Ultra Long inVictoria on Sunday the 30th August.

The Ultra-Long event (held in Ballarat), is a well known mining area with complicated terrain. It was a test of navigation, as well as distance for the legs! The Junior Elites ran a 15 km course through this difficult terrain, toughing it out in the cold and wind.

Henry ran his course in an amazing 1 hour and  44 minutes, beating second place by 3 mins 44 seconds. An amazing effort! In addition to the glory of the win; Henry's minutes per kilometer time was an astounding 6:56 mins. As a result Henry McNulty also won the main elite prize donated by Eureka Orienteers - a return flight to Europe in 2015/16, plus entry to a European Orienteering event of his choice. The total value of this prize is $2,500! It was awarded according to a handicapped adjustment of elite class km rates, based on Scandinavian ultra-long kilometer rates.

This just goes to show what talent we have in WA and we wish Henry all the best. A just reward for his very hard work.

Way to go Henry!
