Event descriptionSeason opening in the Baltic states. In the last years has the competition has been one of the biggest orienteering event in Latvia with more than 800 competitors. This year the organizers have chosen a terrain close to the city Saldus from where the organizing club and many talented runners are coming from. The idea of arranging this competition close to Saldus has been for many years but now it will be for real.
Terrain descriptionMostly pine and spruce forest with very good runability. In some parts undergrowth and fallen trees limit the running speed. Many differently sized marshes in the forest. Even in the marshes the running speed differs from good to limited in areas with undergrowth. On the first competition day the competition terrain is rather flat. Maximum height difference is only 10 meters. Generally there are only few paths and roads. On the second competition day the land forms are more distinctive and rich in details. Maximum height difference is 20 meters.
Training possibilitiesTraining possibility from 12:00 in similar terrain. There will be controls in the terrain.
