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, 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 2009' edition will take place ca. 50km south of Budapest.
Terrain descriptionThe event takes place on the sand-dune ridge between the Danube and Tisza rivers at a height of 110-120 meters above see level. The surface sand is bound by vegetation. The dunes created by the wind produced an area of varied relief. The terrain of the first day has never been used for orienteering before, it is partly open and is rich in contour details. The terrain of the second day will be the same technically complex sand dune terrain that we used in 2008. The vegetation in the whole area is very varied: juniper, pine, oak and acacia forest is mixed with the occasional large clearing and semi-open areas of mixed cover.
