Event descriptionO-festivalen is Norway's premier orienteering weekend. In 2023, the races will be in the capital Oslo - one sprint race and two forest races (middle and long). This is a World Ranking Event with Elite classes in W/M21, W/M 17-18 and W/M19-20, but there are also classes for all age and levels! Remember to follow ofestivalen2023 on instagram!
Terrain descriptionSprint: Suburban mix of schools, recreational areas and housing areas. Middle and long: Oslo's eastern forests are classic Scandinavian terrain - nice, open pine ridges and marshes combined with some steep hills. Some paths and older roads. Mostly excellent runnability, but always technically challenging. Don't miss this opportunity to try Scandinavian terrain at its best!
Training possibilitiesTraining packages close to the event centre will be offered. More information to come on the webpage!
