Event descriptionPostas Cup is traditionally one of Hungary's biggest and most well organized events. It is organized every year in various locations around Budapest, on well updated or brand new maps, by János Sötér, one of Hungary's best mapmakers, and a key member of WOC2009's mapping team. The 2013' edition will take in typical Hungarian low-land sand-dune terrain near Dabas, about 50km SE of Budapest.
Terrain descriptionThe competition terrain is located in the North-western corner of the sand-dune ridge between the Danube and Tisza rivers at a height of 110-120 meters above sea level. The dunes created by the wind produced an area of varied relief. The terrain consists of semi-open areas with rich contour details, intermittent by patches of deciduous forests. On other parts pine forests with good run-ability follow up deciduous forests with varying vegetation cover. The terrain has a rare road and path network, forest cuttings are almost non-existent. No orienteering competition has ever been organized on the terrain before!
Training possibilitiesOn request we can arrange maps/trainings around Budapest.
