Entries to Easter4 are now open!

Please note that now you can make your entry to Easter4! Check OrienteeringOnline.net!

Just before the race it will be possible to take part in training camp on Cres island – in case you haven’t orienteered on Cres, we can tell you we have some really nice maps/terrain there! Very soon we will publish list of available training sessions.

Thank you, next races, and some interesting material ;)

The very first edition of Easter4 is now behind us. We hope that you enjoyed 3 very different karst terrain types! Big thanks to everyone for making this event a nice one! A few people already asked about Easter4 in 2017. Yes, it will be organized, obviously on Easter weekend + Friday and Monday. At this moment we cannot say for sure where it will be held, but definitely in some interesting terrain ;).

If you cannot wait for the whole year, then solution is simple – come to OOcup/2016 in July. This will be a great race – 5 days in 3 countries, on challenging alpine terrain of Slovenia, Italy and Austria! An event not to be missed (already 1090 entries received)! Website: www.oocup.com

What a race! ANALYSIS on Sunday, 20:30, Hotel Malovec!

What a race today. Both winners in Elite classes did a great race, Simona Aebersold winning by over 5 minutes margin and Max Peter Bejmer by over 4 minutes! While Simona’s victory was somewhat expected, Max Peter was a great surprise in M21E, class which has some big names on the list! It will be very interesting to see what is happening tomorrow in Podgrad!

We have some interesting GPS data and we will get more on stages 2 & 3. It will be great to analyze it with Jan Kocbach on Sunday, 20:30 in Hotel Malovec in Divača. Everyone is very welcome, elite runners, juniors and all interested in mastering karst terrain! The topics will be the following:

– GPS and split time analysis from Easter4 2016 Elite classes
– Short discussion on  orienteering in Karst terrain
– Short introduction to Woosplits and 2DRerun for race analysis


See you tomorrow!
