Terrain: park area (many paths, trees, monuments, fences, etc.), touristic centre (hotel, restaurant, casino and other facilities), some Carstic features like depressions and stones. Visibility is very good.

Map: 1:4.000, contour interval: 2 metres, ISSOM, February 2017

Special symbols: black cross - big billboards and children playground; blue cross - water feature (not relevant for the competition); blue circle - well (not relevant for the competition). All trees are drawn with canopy (white area). Large trees are drawn with green circles and canopy and smaller trees without green circles. Young trees are marked with green dots, but only if they are not under canopy of bigger tree.


Elite class: 21 PreO controls and 2 TempO stations. 3300 m / 45 m. Time limit: 108 min. (Open), 120 min. (Paralympic). One TempO station is before the start and one after the finish. 5 controls on each station

A class: 14 PreO controls and 2 TempO stations. 2200 m / 30 m. Time limit: 72 min. (Open), 82 min. (Paralympic). There is no Z answers in A class, but they are in TempO. One TempO station is before the start and one after the finish. 5 controls on each station.

Time limites are calculated as 2 min. per control and 2 min. per every 100 m. The reason for that is that competitors visit same decision points several times and paths are good. Extra time for Paralympic competitors is due climb on the course.

Be very careful on the course because the asphalt roads and parkings will not be closed for the traffic.

Embargoed area: All area around Hotel Maestoso is embargoed area. The embargoed area starts on Sunday at 9.00. You can follow signs on the main roads to the Hotel Maestoso and park your car in front of the Hotel. You can visit Stud Farm when you finished with your race. Competitors have 10% discount for the visit of Stud Farm - look the Sightseeing chapter.

Special rules:

  1. You can use your own puncher.
  2. Time on the course will be measured with SI system.
  3. Elite course have 3 rounds and A class have 2 rounds. Therefore numbers of the controls on decision points are same for both classes - there will not be signs for A class, because they are same as for Elite class. 
  4. Out-of -bounds area will be marked on the terrain with STOP signs.
  5. Solutions will be distributed after the last start.
  6. TempO stations. There are mostly only one person (marshal) on the station. Because ANT application will be used for the time keeping and recording of your answers, you have to wear your number bib visible in the front of your body. Marshal will expect that you will give your answers speaking. If you want to show the answers (they are on the map), warn the marshal before he/she start with the procedure. The maps will be bounded. There will not be any seperated maps.
  7. Complaints can be done only in written form to the organizer or member of the jury not later than 15 minutes after the publication of the final results.

Results calculation: The achieved positions at Day1 and Day2 competitions will be added. The competitor with smaller sum will be ranked higher in the overall classification. In case of the same result, best achieved positions makes higher place. If the result is still equal, the advantage is a better result in Day1.
