Terrain – Csákvár
The terrain is located in the south-eastern foot of the Vértes mountain range between 160-260 m above sea level. The range is built up of dolomite rock, it is full of erosion features, like gullies and steep valleys. One of the consequences of the structure of the bedrock is the firm ground, so there are no marshes. The vegetation of the terrain is diverse. From the large, open and semi-open plateaus with irregular thickets and bushes to the steep-walled, forested valleys. The bushes on the plateaus are usually smoke bushes and the ground there is usually rocky, however runnability and the visibility are excellent. The dominant tree in the forested areas is oak. There are multiple visible marks of human activity, such as hunting objects and remnants of old military objects (buildings, pits and trenches). Track density is medium.
There are large boulders on the sides of the valleys, up to 5 meters high. Abandoned mines in the western part of the terrain are bounded by high cliffs. The top of these will be taped by red-and-white tapes to avoid accidents. Steeper slopes with smaller cliffs and rocks pose a slipping hazard even in dry weather. Be careful in these areas.
Special Features, Forest Qualification Race:
Foxhole (ISOM 113 – brown dots)
Pillar (ISOM 530 – black circle)
Black cross (x) – various hunting objects
Tank pit (special symbol)
Mobile hunting towers may be found in the terrain, but as they are mobile, we decided not to draw them on the map.
Competitors may encounter white ribbons in the terrain. This is used to assist novice competitors in the WMOC Tour competition between some controls. It’s not marked on the WMOC competitors’ maps though.
Club tents are welcome in designated areas in the arena. Please note that there is not much shade available, so bringing a tent may be a viable option.
