Terrain – Székesfehérvár Downtown
The downtown area of the old Hungarian coronation city has 5% park and 95% urban terrain. It is a typical old town area with both narrow and wider passages, little parks and some residential areas. Some of the courtyards will be open only for the WMOC Sprint Final. Building patterns are irregular and the area has very little elevation difference. Roads inside the area are closed, but minor traffic and pedestrians are expected in the complex downtown area. Visibility and runnability are both excellent.
Impassable features are generally very obvious, but red-and-white tape is used to outline those out-of-bounds areas which are not clear on the ground. Race marshals will supervise the area – crossing the red-and white tapes will lead to disqualification.
Special Features, Sprint Final Race:
There is a spectator control 50 metres east of the last control, which is used by most A-final courses.
Restaurant terraces in the Sprint Final race are marked as temporary closed area (ISSprOM 714, area overprinted with 50% purple). It is forbidden to cross these, also please take special care when running around them, guests or waiters may come out anywhere.
Artificial creek (crossable)
Some construction work is being carried out in the city. The construction sites are marked on the map with the out-of-bounds area symbol (ISSprOM 709, purple hatches) and in most places also with a purple boundary line (where the boundary is clear).
Street fountains are marked with the indistinct marsh symbol (310)
Black circle (o) – high pole
Black cross (x) – various man-made objects : playground objects, football goalpost, etc.
As space is very limited, club tents can NOT be pitched in the arena. A big marquee tent can be used to get in the shade. Also there is shade available under the trees.
Please note, that we are in the middle of a big city so don’t leave your valuables unattended – use the luggage storage facility at the Arena Event Office!
