Event descriptionIt will consist of three races: Middle distance (Saturday morning), Sprint (Saturday afternoon) Long Distance (Sunday morning) Involving all the Portuguese and Spanish athletes (eligible to represent their country) current license both the FEDO and the FPO to enroll in the event. Will be awarded the first three classified in each category in each of the modes (sprint, middle and long).
Terrain descriptionLong distance: Sandy pine forest area which develops from the sea (beach) by area substantially flat and micro relief (quick race) up hillsides with moderate slope where a transition occurs to Atlantic forest, consisting mostly of eucalyptus, and abundant ground vegetation (slow running). In some areas of hillside and coastal rock formations appear important, we can find also growing areas and vineyards quick race and open areas of low vegetation that hinders the race. Middle distance: Wooded area with extensive network of paths and slightly hilly, mainly formed by ancient oak forest areas (quick race) and eucalyptus creeping vegetation that slows down the orienteer; presence of large rocky elements in almost all of the map. An area of crops that will not be used practically, near a small rural population also appears. Sprint: Urban map in the campus of Pontevedra and adjacent park area banks of the river Lérez, slope virtually nonexistent. Very fast race.
Training possibilitiesTwo training maps available for 3 days before the event.
