Event descriptionPostás 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 2016' edition will be organized near Szárliget, about 40km West of Budapest, on a technical mountainous terrain.
Terrain descriptionThe event takes place on and around the Zuppa Top which is situated at 385m height on the Southern side of the Gerecse Mountains. The area is rich in contour details. In places steep, rocky sides and flat tops, elsewhere small ridges and valleys follow each other, creating variety and a highly technical terrain. Vegetation cover includes oak and planted conifer forest, mixed with karst bush, open and semi open areas. Runnability of the clear felled areas, created by forestry operations, is variable. The Postás Cup used this area three times (1983, 1987, 2007), of which the event in 1983 marked the advent of the first, unofficial World Cup.
Training possibilitiesOn request we can arrange maps/trainings around Budapest.
