Event descriptionBROWN CUP 2014 is international three-day event: the first two stages - individual races, third stage chasing start.
Terrain descriptionThe mountainous area that will host the three stages is a moderately hilly area located on the southwestern slope of the Plana Mountains at an altitude of between 1,000 and 1,100 meters. Due to the characteristics of the land the terrain features with numerous landforms and details and presence of small knolls and gullies. In the field there are places with cliffs and rock formations. By the reason that the area was used for training of the army there are many trenches, holes and ditches remained. The forest is mainly white pine with good visibility and runnability and without undergrowth. The road network is well developed. Two shallow rivers are passing through the area with a depth of 1 m and a width of 3 meters. Due to its contiguity the terrains are similar to those that will take place starts from JWOC 2014.
