Event descriptionWe invite all orienteering fans to try new maps and interesting terrains in our most visited national park. The third year of race in the Tatra National Park will be very interesting and perhaps the best of all three. It will probably be the most varied in comparison to previous years. Each stage will be on a different map! The first stage is at the Tatra National Park and Pienin National Park. We added an extra stage that will be in the center of the event. In these races we will cross the Tatras. Participants have the opportunity to visit the most famous places of Tatry and the Pienin National Park. Compared to last year, there will be significantly less puddles and more hills. We invite everyone, but note that we have a limited number of 1000 racers.
Terrain descriptionDepending on the stage, the moderately hilly to almost complete flat. The mean density of roads and footpaths. Forest with different runability with high detail / knoll small depressions../. Some courses runs along the mountain meadows and semi-open or open area.
