Event descriptionThe Cappadocia Cup offers very challenging terrain which may be termed as a "stone forest" with its unique rock pillars. Not only will this event offer you 3 days of unique orienteering including a WRE (Middle distance) but will also give you the chance of sighseeing in this infamous region with its underground cities and ancient places of worship of the early Christians.
Terrain descriptionCappadocia has been selected as a candidate for "101 Maps you should run on before you die". See the description of mappers at http://orienteeringmaps.net/blog/2010/03/10/cappadocia-terrain-presentation/ and photos at https://picasaweb.google.com/ales.hejna/MustafapasaTurkey2011
