Event descriptionVelikden Cup is the biggest competition in Bulgaria and includes 4 different disciplines! The event is organized by Orienteering Club «Variant 5» Targovishte, and the Swiss supporting club of «Variant 5». Event directors: Dian Bonev (BUL), Marc Lettau (SUI).
Terrain descriptionAll competitions will take place on new maps. The fieldwork will be done in late 2014 and early 2015 by Bulgaria’s well-known mapper Dian Bonev. The forests in Targovishte region are mainly mixed forests with big parts of oak and beech – good runnability! Lots of little creeks, gullies, ditches, trenches, foxhowls and rocks add some thrill to the interesting and hilly terrain. For last years maps go to: www.variant5.org/velikdencup
