Event descriptionSimultaneously with the Junior World Orienteering Championships (JWOC) and just before the legendary Swiss Orienteering Week (SOW), we are offering an attractive competition and training program to all recreational athletes, spectators and vacation guests with the centre in Scuol in the Lower Engadine Valley. Special treats are the events in those towns and woods where just a few hours beforehand the future elite athletes have fought for medals. No less than six former world and european champions are setting the best possible courses in that marvellous competition area. Take advantage of this opportunity and cheer on the junior elite stars with your friends and then follow their tracks on the same maps and courses they had just used.
