Hard karst on altitude of 800m. Map will be revised in May 2013.
2nd stage 24th July 2012 - sprint - GRAD KRK
New map covering area never used for orienteering. Mix of karst, continentall and unique flat terrain. We will have to make unique precedent by making double contour interval on map (2,5 m for flat part of map and 5 m for steep part!).
Valley of Sungerski lug will be combined with Golubinjak! We will have to make unique precedent by making double contour interval on map (2,5 m for flat part of map and 5 m for steep part!). Drastic change of terrain in only one map. Run faster than 5min/km on almost scandinavian type of terrain and than enter stony "devil´s garden" where elite runners can´t run under 10min/km! Map sample is showing southern part of map. As usual, laser scaning basemaps will be used for maping.
Last stage of Croatia open 2013 will be placed in stony area of protected park forest Golubinjak. Romans called this area hortus diabolicus or "devil´s garden". Why? Hmm, you will have to find out by yourself! One of most extreme maps ever drawn and used for orienteering with plenty of stony tunnels, giant boulders and high cliffs!
