Event descriptionOK “Fortūna” invites you to join in the largest autumn orienteering event in Lithuania - Lithuanian Cup 2011 (running) and Lithuanian MTBO Cup stages 14 and 15. Late season running and biking event on long and middle distance combined with traditional party becomes most popular way to end the big season. This year you have chance to run on the one of the most interesting terrains in Lithuania, part of legendary Katlaukis (Kotlovka)forest, where Soviet Union championships were held 20 years ago. We believe that interesting courses combined with UNESCO heritage Vilnius old town dressed in golden autumn colours and unforgettable atmosphere of hundreds orienteerers’ hearts makes this event the one you can’t miss.
Terrain descriptionComplicated hilly terrain covered by pine and mixed forests with medium to low density trail network, requiring good map reading skills and providing route choice options. Long course will be held in the Western part of the Katlaukis (Kotlovka) area, nearby to the the location where Soviet Union championships have been held 20 years ago. The area is covered by pine forests with good and medium runability, there are some cuttings in the area; the network of openings and paths is clear. There are lots of landscape forms varying in size and complexity – from very big to small. Middle course will be held in close to Senasalis village, around the Barsukynės hill (with 287 meters the 6th highest hill in Lithuania). The major part of the map area is covered with mixed and fir forests with medium runability, featuring expressive landscape forms. The path network is of medium density.
