TERRAIN

Budaörs (day 1): 30% park and 70% urban terrain with housing estate buildings and residential houses, small shopping centres, parks and schools. Building patterns are irregular and courtyards of schools, sport grounds, etc. provide good orienteering challenge. There will be some climb in the courses. Little traffic is expected.

 

 

Székesfehérvár (day 2): Downtown area of the old Hungarian coronation city with 10% park and 90% urban terrain. Typical old town area with smaller and bigger passages, little parks and some residential areas. Some of the courtyards are expected to be opened for the WMOC Sprint Final. Building patterns are irregular. The area has very little elevation difference. Roads inside the area will be closed, but minor traffic and walkers are expected in the complex downtown area.

The terrain for the 3 forest races (days 3-5) is mainly characterised by granite rock formations, some deep valleys, rapidly changing runnability and visibility, dense vegetation mazes, open areas and some open forest.
