Event descriptionThe O'Festival is organised so as to allow participants to: - Compete in a high level 6-stage orienteering event on the same terrain as the World Championships: * exceptional terrain (semi-open forests, meadows, chaotic limestone surfaces), * courses adapted to every taste (for the young and the not so young, from beginner to specialist) * World Championships maps (different for each stage and only a day after the championship event) * same arenas as the WOC (finish chute, partners’ village, podium, etc.) - Watch the World Championships show: * be at the heart of the event once you have finished your race (for 5 of the 6 stages you will have the same finish area as the WOC; there is a rest day for the sprint championships) * follow the competitions live (large screen, pictures from the forest, GPS tracking) * be in contact with the world’s best orienteers * benefit from all the services offered to the public.
Terrain descriptionAt the heart of the park lies the Savoie Grand Revard resort where the competitions will take place. Situated between 1200 m and 1400 m, this limestone plateau has significant but reasonable variations in its relief. You will enjoy the beauty of semi-open forests, where ever-greens and deciduous trees alternate with alpine meadows, and large openings giving onto the Mont Blanc. The chaotic surface (rocks, sinkholes, karren) provides exceptional and varied competition terrain.
