Event descriptionThe Swiss Orienteering Week is an international multi-day orienteering event that combines holiday, sport and a hint of adventure. Founded in 1996, the Swiss O Week stands for top quality orienteering coupled with a wide range of tourist attractions, interesting culture and atmospheric social events. Modern: the transport concept The event centre in the village of Muotathal is easy to reach by public transport. The first race will be in Schwyz, the capital of the canton. The other five races in Muotatal can only be reached using the official race transport. You will therefore not need a car during the Swiss O Week.
Terrain descriptionChallenging: the race concept Six areas, five of them mapped for the first time, guarantee exciting competitions: a town sprint, a short distance event, three demanding races in pre-alpine terrain and an alpine long-distance race. The Swiss O Week 2009 Muotatal is aimed at well-trained orienteers that appreciate varied terrain in an impressive natural environment and are looking for a special challenge.
