Event descriptionWelcome to Follo 7 to 9 September 2018! In the heart of Follo lies Norway's environmental and bioscience university, NMBU, with an amazing park and a unique building environment. Friday, September 7, 2018 at 17:00 is the first start of the sprint here. Then we go to Gaupesteinmarka, which is a large unspoiled forest and landscape area with scratched furury gorges that go diagonally in the terrain. Here we arrange good old-fashioned long distance orienteering on Saturday 8 September at. 11:00. The veteran championship will en with middle distance on Sunday 9 September, starting from kl. 10:00.   In addition to the Masters Championships, there will be a couple of open sprint runs on Friday, Saturday and Sunday public races, and on Saturday it will be a challenging retro race on a 1970 map, 5 and 10 km courses.
Training possibilitiesThe terrain on Saturday and Sunday is close to the area where WOC 2019 is held, so this is a good training oportunity for those who are prepering for this event.
Holiday activities,nature,hiking etc.The racees can easily be combined with an Oslo-weekend with visits to the Holmenkollen skijump arena, The Vikingship Museum, Akershus Fortres and a lot more.
