Event descriptionTRIcityO is a combination of 3 city races, all in historic fortified cities near a major river. We will start with a MD city race in Heusden-vesting, a city never used for orienteering before. We will start at 14:00 to accommodate travel arrangements. Stage 2 will be a night sprint in Woudrichem, one of the most well preserved historic fortified cities in the Netherlands. Stage 3 will be a LD city race in Gorinchem. It will be the first ever city race to be incorporated in the Dutch national league. Ranking will be calculated by points and all 3 stages will count. The competition center will be in a museum with also the possibility to stay overnight at the museum. TRIcityO is a good preparation for EURO City Races Tour or those who are just fond of city races.
Terrain descriptionAll venues are cities famous for their defense works to defend the town from attacks in the 18th century. The course setter will use both the ancient inner city parts as well as the defense works surrounding the city.
