European Rogaining Championships 2023
Yulia Buhaiets’ report from European Rogaining Championships 2023, Finland.
We covered 92 km and gained 263 points during the 24-hour score. My team was very close to winning a medal. During the race we were second, behind the winners from Latvia, until 8 am on Sunday. However, then we made a fatal mistake and got lost in Finnish marshes, hills and forest. As a result we’ve taken 5th place in WV category and 11th place in the Open category among 57 Women’s Team. I feel it’s not too bad. It’s amazing we can compete with European level teams. We were able to beat a lot of Scandinavian teams for whom it was their home terrain.
It was my second rogaining event of such a level, and it gave me an incredible opportunity to test my endurance and decision-making in extreme situations. Our team showed good team work and team spirit. I am looking forward to trying it again next year.
