Event descriptionPostas Cup is traditionally one of Hungary's biggest and most well organized events. It is organized every year in various locations around Budapest, on well updated or brand new maps, by János Sötér, one of Hungary's best mapmakers, and a key member of WOC2009's mapping team. The 2015' edition will be organized near Szabadszállás, about 100km South of Budapest, on a somewhat unusual low-land terrain.
Terrain descriptionThe competition terrain is located on the the sand-dune ridge between the Danube and Tisza rivers at a height of 110-125 meters above sea level. The dunes created by the wind produced an area of varied relief. The terrain consists mostly of mixed deciduous and pine forests with varying run-ability. The terrain has a rare road and path network. The map samples below are from neighboring/similar terrains. No orienteering competition has ever been organized on this terrain before!
Training possibilitiesOn request we can arrange maps/trainings around Budapest.
