Since his tragically early death in January 1967, Jan Kjellstrom's name has been honoured by an international testival ol orienteering which is now ranked as one at the most important events ol its kind in the world. Scotland hosts the T88 Jan Kiellstrom Festival lorthe lirst time in ; over a decade and expects to see over 2 3500 competitors take part in individual races tortwo days over the Easter weekend and a team relay on Monday 16, the third day at competition. Using specially-prepared maps, the runners will be separated by
' ability, with the bulk ot the attention
locused on the Elite classes. Britain has, as usual, a strong representation in both the men's and
women‘s elite events, with current GB champions, Steve Hale and Yvette
Hague, each hoping to ligure in the top live places. Both are English but live in Scotland to take advantage at rough terrain training. However, alterthe JK, Hale is set to leave tor Sweden, such is his commitment to improving his world standing. Other Scots-based orienteers, Andy Kitchen and Dickie Jones, are also likely to achieve respectable places.
lnevitahly, the Scandanavians still dominate the sport, with Switzerland the next strongest. Britain though is not too tar behind and the gap separating us from the big guns is diminishing all the time as more and more at our top pertormers in the sport devote themselves in an almost lull-time capacity. The Scandinavians, Swiss and Brits will be joined by teams lrom North America and the Eastern Bloc. Pointedly, there is likely to be a separate team representing Estonia.
Recognising that orienteering is not a sport which provides too many opportunities tor spectating, especially during the days at individual competiition, the organisers promise to construct appetising beginner courses tor those who do choose to witness the colourlul chaos ol the JK and have a mind to try the sport. (Mike Wilson) The Jan Kjellstrom Festival, Fri 13—Mon 16 Apr. Friday is a practice day, with Saturday's and Sunday’s racing taking place at Creagvinean and Craiga‘barnes, to the north at Dunkeld. The relay race, on Monday, is being held at Devilla Forest, near Kincardine.
