Event description„Harpagan” Extreme Orienteering Challenge is the biggest orienteering event in Poland. It takes place twice a year: in April and October and it has been so since 1989. The motto of the Challenge is “We know ourselves only to the extent to which we have been tested” (Wislawa Szymborska, Nobel Prize laureate). Over 1000 participants, among them the best Polish ultramarathoners, face the distance, map and their own weakness, regardless of the weather. Each time, the headquarters of the Challenge is located in a different city of Pomeranian Voivodeship and most of the competition takes place in woodlands. The checkpoints are confirmed by electronic Sport Ident system. Every participant, who completes any of the Harpagan Classic routes within deadline, is awarded with the “Harpagan” Title. The term „Harpagan” describes a person who is vivid and full of energy as well as slightly mad and furious at the same time. You are invited to participate in 1 of 9 courses: Foot-O - 100 km, 50 km, 25 km, 10 km MTB-O - 200 km, 100 km, 50 km, 20 km Mixed - 50 km of Foot-O, then 100 km of MTBO
