Terrain – Csákvár
The competition area is located on the southern part of the Vértes hills, the bedrock of which is dolomite formed from former marine sediment. This can typically be found on the side of the valleys and appears in the form of cliffs (1-3 metres high) and smaller blocks of stone on the surface. Although the cliffs are relatively small, in combination with steep slopes they pose a slipping hazard even in dry weather. Be careful in these areas.
There are no large stone fields which slow down the running.
The area at 185-316 metres above sea level has wide ridges with some steep slopes and is cut by valleys, the sides of which – in some places very densely – are laced by smaller side valleys. Pits and small artificial depressions are common, usually located in groups.
Abandoned mines in the southwestern part of the terrain are bounded by steep cliffs. The top of these will be taped by red-and-white tapes to avoid accidents.
The vegetation consists predominantly of deciduous trees and shrubs. The density of the forest varies, but in general the runnability is good. There is often no vegetation on the ridges and in the southern hillsides, where runnability is excellent. Strong undergrowth is rarely found except in smaller patches. A medium-density road network is used for hunting and hiking. The area is extremely dry with no watercourses.
Hunting objects (hunting towers, feeding places) occur in large numbers.
Special Features, Long Final Race:

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.
