Event descriptionThe standards of the organising team proved for example with the Portugal 'O' Meeting 2007, the excellent maps (near the beach which means a soft but technical terrain) and the "affection" of the home town which welcomes the event will certainly assure a unique event. An event which will never be complete without You!... The terrain of the competition will be very similar to the one used on the World Masters Championships 2008 - WMOC'08. We hope you will take this opportunity to compete and; why not; to train... And, of course, you can always choose/enjoy our Training Camps. We are waiting for your presence!!!
Terrain descriptionNew maps on a very demanding terrain will create a very challenging WRE and Long Distance where only the best can win. A correct map reading and a very fast running speed will be essential for a successful performance in a ideal map next the beach which means a soft but technical terrain. After the event you can go to the beach, and have a regeneration run right on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. For the beginning of the night we propose a night orienteering sprint event in the small beach village of “Praia da Tocha”, where a challenging map (similar to the one of the Sprint final of the 2008 WMOC) is waiting for you.
