Event descriptionAntalya O Days was first organized in 2008 in the Manavgat region of Antalya and has quickly become one of the most popular international orienteering events in Turkey. With its sunny beaches and very moderate weather even in February, Antalya O Days offers a chance to combine plenty of sunbathing and swimming with 4 days of challenging orienteering. Antalya O Days 2015 will take place in the Alanya region of the Mediterranean coast.The shining star of the Mediterranean, Alanya, is the perfect tourist destination with its long, sandy beaches, historical artifacts, natural beauty, fish restaurants, contemporary hotels, cafés, bars and discos. Alanya welcomes you with its 13-centuries old Seljuk Castle, which is situated like a crown at top of Alanya peninsula.
Terrain descriptionThe terrain in Alanya has never been used for orienteering before. Mapping continues and will be completed in January 2015. Stage 1 (Middle Distance) offers a prelude to the days to come. Excellent runnability and visibility. Steep descents and intricate stone features in places. Stage 2 (Middle Distance, WRE) This highly technical terrain is staged on the Cebeli Reis Plateau with a magnificent view of the Dim Dam in the north and the dazzling Mediterranean Sea on the south. The terrain is stony with many small knolls and depressions. Visibility varies. This will surely be a good test for orienteering skills required by a high-quality Middle Distance event. Stage 3 (Long, WRE) Runnability varying from excellent to difficult, this beautiful plateau stretches over 6 km2 with a mixture of open land and pine forests. Stage 4 (Sprint, WRE) Prepare for a breathtaking event within the historical castle of Alanya and the intricate, narrow streets of its surroundings.
