Event descriptionSeason opening in the Baltic states. In the last years has the competition has been one of the biggest orienteering event in Latvia with more than 800 competitors. This year the organisers have chosen terrains which are even relevant for woc2017.
Terrain descriptionMixed forest. The runability differs from good in areas where pine and spruce forest is growing to limited in areas with dense leaf forest and fallen trees. Some open land areas. The relief is changing from round, poorly detailed hills to areas with micro relief with many small features. Terrain is rather hilly. On middle distance the maximum height difference is 70 meters. On the long distance there are some steep slopes with small ravines where the height difference can be 45 meters. Many differently sized marshes in the forest. Even in the marshes the runability differs from good to very limited. Generally the terrain has few paths and roads.
Training possibilitiesModel event on Friday 07.04.2017. Relevant to the competition. It is possible to organise training/training camps in relevant terrains. Contact rudolfs.zernis@gmail in that case.
