Antwerp Sprint Orienteering Meeting 2017

Only 12 days left to register for ASOM 2017, a 2-days sprint event in Antwerp (Belgium) at 13th and 14th of May. The highlight of the Belgian Sprint calendar includes 2 sprint races on Saturday and a middle/long distance urban race on Sunday. 

Also this year the organisation has the same concept and ambitions, although the races will take place on 3 new maps (Mastvest, Kielpark and 't Steen). The goal from ASOM is to introduce orienteering to non-orienteering people and convince them about the beauty of our sports. On the other they want to organise a high level sprint competition with international athletes and the best Belgians at the startline. This years event will be the first time ever that SportIdent Air+ will be used in Belgium (provided for all participants).

Tim Robertson (2016) and Yannick Michiels (2015) both won ASOM before

The top-5 in men and women elite at ASOM 2017 will win prize money (500 euro for a victory). The best elite runners will be rewarded for their performances. Also a lottery will take place for all participants with as best prize 1000 euro.

At the moment the previous winners of ASOM in class H21E have already announced that they will show up at the startline. Both Yannick Michiels (BEL) and Tim Robertson (NZL) are motivated to take a 2nd overall victory. In womens class Anna Serrallonga (ESP) and Laura Robertson (NZL) already confirmed their participation.
Also the best Belgian sprint athletes will show up because it counts as a Belgian testrace for WOC 2017 in Estonia.

Only 12 days left untill the registration of Asom closes for the weekend runners. You will have untill Sunday 30/04 to register at !! Don't miss this unique event in Antwerp!
