Event descriptionIn 2016 Bubo cup will again be organized as a 4 day event. Great event to combine orienteering with summer vacation on Adriatic coast. Worried about possible summer heat? No need to worry. The old oak forest is giving nice shade during the full vegetation season. But even more importantly, all races will start early, at 8:00 with the last runners starting not later than 9:00. This will be regulated by assigning the max. number of competitors in classes as well as needed number of start points. At around 10:30 all competitors should be out of forest and be free to enjoy the crystal clear Adriatic sea. 100% orienteering and 100% mediterranean experience is waiting for you on Cres island!
Terrain descriptionThe forest of Tramuntana is located very close to the sea but 350 m above it. Old oaks are giving nice shade during summer. Runnability is mostly good, but visibility is lower in full vegetation, which makes this technically difficult terrain even more interesting. Some rocky areas as well as some completely stone free parts. Cres olive groves is an unique area for orienteering which was appreciated by runners in 2015, so we shall use it also in 2016!
