Event descriptionWe kindly invite you to take part in our international 4-days-orienteering event «Cupa Velikden» from April 29th to May 2nd, 2016, in Targovishte, Bulgaria. The event takes place during the Orthodox Easter festivities and is a splendid opportunity to explore Bulgarian culture off the beaten tracks. The program in brief includes a One man relay, WRE Sprint, WRE Middle and a Long distance.
Terrain descriptionAll competitions will take place on new maps. The fieldwork will be done in late 2015 and early 2016 by Bulgaria’s well-known mapper Dian Bonev. The forests in Targovishte region are mainly mixed forests with big parts of oak and beech – good runnability! Lots of little creeks, gullies, ditches, trenches, foxhowls and rocks add some thrill to the interesting and hilly terrain.
Training possibilitiesThere are a lot of maps around Targovishte which can be used for trainings so you are very welcome for a training camp before and after the races.
