Event descriptionThe 2nd edition of the GP Melis will include 2 mass start races with forking on sunday 10/11/2013 in a nice Flemish terrain. A part of the map has never been used before. At GP Melis we can expect exciting courses with fine orienteering, demanding route choices and fast running in a forest area. We hope that it is going to be a nice clash between the best juniors, elite runners and veterans! You also have the opportunity to run other regional competitions on friday, saturday and monday. In Brussels '3 Jours de la ForÍt de Soignes' will be organised (9-11/11). These races are perfect to get used to the Belgian terrain and be prepared for the famous GP Melis. The event on friday 08/11 in Kelchterhoef is a nice warming up race to begin the 4-days full of competitions.

Terrain descriptionChallenging and fast orienteering is what can be expected. Keep your speed high in the open forest, but don't let your attention drop in zones with limited visibility. Conserve energy by making a detour through the dense path network or stick to the line and fight the terrain.
