Event descriptionSeason opening in the Baltic states. In the last years, the competition has been one of the biggest orienteering events in Latvia with more than 900 competitors.
Terrain descriptionTechnically demanding sand dune terrain at the coastline of the Baltic Sea where EOC2008 was held. The terrain varies from distinct landforms to areas rich in detail. Mostly coniferous forest with excellent or good runnability. Some areas have reduced runnability due to dense spruce and juniper vegetation, along with fallen trees. The northern part of the terrain is covered with several larger and small marshes with varying runnability. Almost no forestry work has been done and no clearings can be found in the competition area. Regular road and path network. The maximum height difference is 18 meters.
Training possibilitiesThis year a training camp (Camp Courland) will be held in connection with WRE Kurzemes Pavasaris and some of the very best Latvian terrains located around Ventspils. Ventspils has large areas of unique and technically demanding terrain. High-speed orienteering through areas very rich in details and varying vegetation will be the perfect challenge. Five sessions are available for training and preparation before Kurzemes Pavasaris or any other period of time. See our homepage for more information.
