Event descriptionWelcome to the 15th of "Istanbul 5 Days". The competitions will be held between 30 October – 4 November 2018. The forests in two sides of the city, one of the Prince’s Islands, including the legendary Grand Bazaar, will be hosting to our extremely joyful and highly competitive events. For those willing to have a weekful of orienteering event with 5 stages in 5 days, there will be additional training possibilites upon request.
Terrain descriptionThe forest terrain with bowl-type valleys and open areas, with lots of gullies, many small depressions, streams at the bottom of the gullies and pits. There are many footpaths and forest roads crossing eachother. Basically a beech forest with some pine areas as well. Eventhough there are some undergrowth, it does not effect runnability.
