Event descriptionDear Orienteering Friends we are honoured to organise Stage1 of the 2rd World Cup Round 2014. Spain is going to be a World Cup hosting country for the first time. The City of Cehegín and the Murcia region is ready to welcome the orienteering world again. We hope you will enjoy interesting orienteering courses and the great atmosphere and climate of Murcia.
Terrain descriptionThe terrain is undoubtedly the best so far mapped in the region of Murcia, for the use of Orienteering. Located north east of the city of Cehegín, in an area known as Coto de las Maravillas (which gives its name to the map) and the location of the source of the river of Gilico. The land has plenty of detail, with plenty of valleys, spurs, gullies, etc.., it has mainly gentle climb. Presenting a mostly gen drop. It is covered with pine forests, alternating with semi-open in some areas, there are also pine reforestation areas that limit visibility, but do not slow down the running speed.
Training possibilitiesThe organization will organize, in partnership with SUN-O, various training opportunities from January 2014 on Murcia. For futher information about training opportunities, please visit:
