Timer and control punching system:

Electronic system SportIdent will be used at this event.

Each member of each team must have their SI card sealed to their wrist.

For 12 and 24 hours events we recommend using only SI cards with large capacity. If you run with SI card with lower capacity (30 controls on SI5 and SI8, or 50 controls on SI 9), we only count the controls recorded on the card.

SI cards that were preordered will be ready for you in team envelopes at the registration desk. We will charge 2000 CZK for each lost SI card.



The racing area offers variety of terrains. Some slopes are so steep that you can slip on them even in dry weather. Very often you get into stone fields or rubble, so please walk carefully. There are many rock cliffs in the map. Be very careful at all rock controls, but especially at controls 54, 58, 65, 67, 88 a 90, especially at night. At control point number 87, do not approach the edge of the waterfall – it will be marked with a warning tape. The bridge on the CP 62 is ruined, mind your step!

While approaching control point number 95 please be careful – there are iron rods sticking out of clumsily made staircase.


Please be very careful while crossing roads. Be also very careful when crossing the local railroad. There are 8 trains a day there, so be aware of them.

Out of bounds areas & not recommended areas

In the southern part of the map at control point 75 there is a shooting range, marked with hatches in the map and an arrow in the direction of shooting. It is fenced only from the southern side, but make sure to run around it.

Similar hatching also includes orchards, gardens, bull and horse runs. Some aren’t fenced, but an angry owner can make them a shooting range. You should also avoid green-orange areas of private land.

First aid:

Should you have some less serious troubles, please contact the organizer: +420 739 548 142
In case of serious injury call emergency line 112 (and also let organizers know).

Hash house:

24 and 12 HR categories can use the hash house, opened from Saturday 17:00 to Sunday 13:00. In order to minimize amount of garbage, please use your own dish (bowls, trays, spoons etc.)

Control points and finish:

Control points will be marked with regular orienteering white-orange control flags 30×30 cm and with SI unit and code of the control point. When punching please wait for acustic and visual signal of the SI unit. If teh SI unit does not work please write down numeric code that is written on red and white ribbon at the control point.

Finish line will be at the centre event. While finishing each team member has to punch the SI unit at the finish and have their SI cards read out at the registration desk. Even in case you give your race up you must come to the finish and let organizers know, so that we don´t need to alarm the Police.

Event evaluation:

Control points will have numeric code – both on the map and in the control descriptions. When you multiply the first digit of the code by ten, you´ll get the point value of that particular control point (minimum 30, maximum 90 points). It is up to you how many control points and in which order you visit.

Final ranking of teams will depend on the total score achieved. When the points are equal, the lower target time decides. If the time limit is exceeded, 20 points will be deducted for each minute of delay. If the time limit is exceeded by 30 minutes or more, the team will not be evaluated.
