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 a terrain that can be described as a pure Baltic classic in a positive way. Because of early spring, most parts in the terrain are going to be very enjoyable. A good way to start you preparations for woc2018.
Terrain descriptionMixed forest and varying terrain. 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. Terrain is rather hilly with distinct and large features. There are some steep slopes where the height difference can be up to 50 meters. Many differently sized marshes in the forest. Even in the marshes the runability differs from good to very limited. Generally, there are only few paths and roads.
Training possibilities06.04.2018. Training in similar terrain from 16:00 Controls in the forest. Lot of similar maps around in the region. It is possible to organise a training before or after the competition. Contact OK Saldus,
