Event description3-day orienteering event with slightly shortened course distances. Day 3 is a pursuit race. This is determined in northern Halland with its detailed terrain. The campsite is located in Åsa. From the campsite it is cycling distance to stages two and three and walking distance to the sea.
Terrain descriptionArena Håfors - Stage 1 This is where the middle distance stage will be decided. The Sjögärdet Map is situated in the southeastern part of Kungs- backa, near the village Håfors. In this area you will find old fir forest with sparse undergrowth, pine forest with blueberry vegetation which is not very hindering for running. There are quite a few areas with flat rocks and a few clear cuttings and slow run areas. Arena Buared - Stages 2 and 3 The two last stages are decided on a entirely new map in the Ölmevalla hills a few kilometres to the east of the seaside resort Åsa. From the camping at Vassbäck you can go here by bike. In Ölmevalla an area with farm- and meadowland, residential buildings and some roads and paths will be used for the shorter courses. The longer courses will be a wonder- ful experience since the main part of the map consists of a wilderness. This area has some major hills with interesting hillsides.
