Event descriptionSeason opening in the Baltic states. In the last years 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 that will suite elite runners in their preparations towards EOC2020. Although EOC2020 will be held in Estonia relevant terrain can be found even in Latvia! Because of early spring, most parts in the terrain are going to be very enjoyable. Welcome!
Terrain descriptionMostly pine and spruce forest with good or slightly reduced 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. The relief is changing from round, poorly detailed hills to areas with micro relief with many small features. Maximum height difference is 20 meters. Some parts of the map has a rich path and road network but generally there are only few paths and roads.
Training possibilitiesOn 03.04.2020 there is a model event provided. The terrain and course is very relevant for Kurzemes Pavasaris 2020. Maps will be available at the competition centre. Additionally OK Saldus is able to provide a training camp for all type of athletes and competitors. There are around 15 maps in Kurzemes region that can be used as training. We can arrange training sessions, plan courses, set out markings, make technical training based on individual needs.
