Event descriptionPostas Cup is traditionaly one of Hungary's biggest and most well organised events. It is organised every year in various locations around Budapest, usually on well updated or brand new maps, by János Sötér, one of Hungary's best mapmakers, and a key member of WOC2009's mapping team. The 2008' edition will take place 50km south of Budapest on very tricky terrain.
Terrain descriptionThe competition will take place in the NW part of the sand dune ridge between Duna and Tisza rivers in the height of 120-140 meters above see level. From the sandy surface the wind has created a number of sand dune hills of different size and shape, all in all a very interesting contour rich terrain. One part of the competition terrain was maped in 1999, and proved to be a very challenging area for orienteering with it’s numerous pits and depressions. That map is going to be enlarged with an area belonging to the “Natura 2000” environment and nature protection project. The vegetation of the terrain is very varied: it consist of juniper bush areas, conifer and deciduous forests, open and semi open areas.
