Event descriptionNew 2 day event in Croatia. Organized in cooperation of Croatian and Slovenian club (all technical part (maps, courses, time keeping) organized by OOCup team). Maps will be made by top mappers who mapped for competitions on highest level as well as for example multiday events like OOCup and Lipica open (last 2 years). START FEES ARE DONATION BASED. You decide how much, if anything, to donate!
Terrain descriptionOld oak forest, very unusual for islands in Adriatic sea. The area has many artificial forms as they used to dig bauxite there. Terrain allows fast running.
Training possibilitiesAt the moment we offer no orienteering maps on the island. However, it's possible to combine the race with trainings in Slovenia. Or to do some running or trekking like trainings on 1:25000 maps.
Holiday activities,nature,hiking etc.Cres is one of the most beautiful and wildest islands in Croatia. In February you can expect very few people there which adds to wild like atmosphere on the island!
