Event descriptionOO.cup is one of the main multiday events in the region. It is organized in relaxd way but with emphasize on high quality technical part. OOcup's specialty are the ULTIMATE CLASSES, which are run on the maps without paths. Ultimate challenge for Ultimate fun!
Terrain descriptionMixed quite fast and runable karst terrain (expected winning times for Elite about 6min/km) and slower parts / stages. Terrain is technically difficult and very detailed. We recomend entering ULTIMATE CLASSES for those who want more than just "regular" challenge :)
Training possibilitiesPlenty of training possibilities in Slovenia. You may contact us or first check www.orienteering.si for possibilities.
Holiday activities,nature,hiking etc.Slovenia is homeland of Karst, so the most obvious attraction in Postojna are the caves: Postojna cave (the most visited European cave), Škocjan cave (UNESCO), Krizna jama cave (possible to go for some real caving with borrowed equipment). Since Slovenia is small and compact it is quite easy to get to some very nice mountains too and of course to Adriatic coast. Ljubljana is within 35mins reach and it's very interesting in summer time.
