Event descriptionFor the third time, Andalucia-O-Meeting 2012 is organized in the 'Meca of Orienteering', the magnificent micro-dunes of the natural area "Pinar de la Brena", located between Barbate and Canos de Meca, Cadiz province. Our objective is to offer you "different" and fun high quality competitions, in the mild winter climate of the desolate Atlantic Beaches (15-25C) having you taste some of Andalusian culture and food. For this edition, Sun-O has joined forces with Fundi-O and Apartamentos Canos de Meca to make the event even more memorable. And, once again, be sure that you will run on brand new terrains and maps...
Terrain descriptionTerrains are generally fast, detailed, with many small hills and depressions, hard sand dunes with pines, mixed with some low bushes, all next to the seaside. Some areas are more hilly and sometimes even steep. Professional cartographers have worked on new areas and updating existing maps the last 3 years. We now have more than 25sq of near to perfect maps !
