There are Open Courses on Friday 28 and Saturday 29 April. Open Courses are in a separate area from the main competition. They have a separate start and finish about 600 metres from the 10MILA Arena.

 

The information in this bulletin refers specifically to Open Courses. For other information, see the bulletins for Travel & Arena (länk), Accommodation (länk-t.b.d.) and Services (länk-t.b.d.).

ARENA

CLUB REGISTRATION

Clubs that have pre-ordered maps should collect all the maps for their club from the Open Course desk at the Arena. Swedish clubs will be invoiced after the event. Other clubs pay cash.

These runners should not register or download their times after they have finished. Each club is responsible for its runners.

 

ENTRY FEES

SEK 70 for M/W 16 and under. SEK 120 for M/W 17 and over.

There will be a charge of SEK 50 to hire an SI card. The charge for a card that is lost or not returned is SEK 580.

PUNCHING SYSTEM

SportIdent electronic punching (SI card). The SI card may only be used once a day. An SI card that is used for one of the relays can also be used.

 

CONTROL DESCRIPTIONS

Control descriptions are printed on the map. Separate control descriptions are available at start.

 

 

FINISH PROCEDURE

Punch at finish. NOTE! After passing the finish line, runners download SI data at the Open Course desk at the Arena.

 

SI data download closes 2 hours after the final start time on each day.

 

MAP

Revised by Kartsam, 2011. Scale: 1:7,500 for ÖM7. 1:10,000 for other courses. 5 m contour intervals. Offset print 2017, except for ÖM7 and ÖM10 on Saturday which are digitally printed.

 

The network of paths has been updated and is clearly shown. In the terrain, this is marked with white tapes. On the map, it is shown with purple dashes.

 

CONTROLS

The controls are marked with orange/white flags. Reflective markers are used on the night controls.

 

TERRAIN DESCRIPTION

Terrain type: The area includes spruce forest and mixed woodland with some pure stands of oak. The forest stands are of varying ages. There are quite a lot of paths and tracks. Only a few marshes.

Climb: Gentle to very hilly terrain. Some sections with few distinguishing details and also hillsides with many features.

Runnability: Generally good to very good. However, there are some patches of denser forest, rocky terrain or thinned areas where runnability is reduced. Runnability is very reduced in some of the green area in the southernmost part of the competition terrain.



OUT-OF-BOUNDS AREAS

Out of consideration for wildlife and landowners, several areas are strictly out-of-bounds. These are only marked on the map.

On the way to the last control, runners on all the courses come to a barbed wire fence. This is marked with blue/yellow tapes. On the map it is marked with a thick purple line to indicate it cannot be crossed. There are two openings in the fence. These are marked on the map. Runners may only cross the fence at these openings.

 

TO START/FINISH

Start and finish are east of the Arena. Follow the orange/white tapes and reflective markers for about 600 metres.

The taped route to the start begins at the Open Course desk at the Arena.

RESULTS

The results will be continually updated on the screen at the Arena and on http://liveresultat.orientering.se/...., and afterwards online on Eventor.

 

The courses will be uploaded to Livelox (see link in Eventor).

 

COURSES

The courses for all classes (except ÖM1) are different on each day. So even if you run the same class on both Friday and Saturday, the courses will not be the same.

As well as the normal Open Courses, there is an ÖM10 gaffled/forked course, which offers mass-start training.

On Friday, all the courses (except ÖM1 and ÖM3) have night reflectors so it is possible to run these courses in the dark.
