Extreme rich in contour details, some parts with bare rhyolite tuff surfaces, varied runnability. Real enjoyment of orienteering. Cliffs and valleys marked impassable are truly impassable! In some parts of the forest flora is stronger than usual. We advise you to wear a gaiter. Areas marked with purple bands (the area of the famous rhyolite tuff erosion) are prohibited. You can only see them from the outside during your run. The map was awarded by the prize „map of the year”. Enlarged with 1,5…3 km2 new area, never used before for orienteering.

Process of the relay

Registration by name and strict order of the runners with SI numbers should be given as soon as possible by filling a registration form which can be downloaded from the website and must be sent to Ez az e-mail cím a spamrobotok elleni védelem alatt áll. Megtekintéséhez engedélyeznie kell a JavaScript használatát.. The deadline of this printed form is 20:00 Friday, 1st April.
            Those who send their registrations after the deadline will have to pay 1000 HUF/team as an administration fee. Registrations can only be modified in special cases (e.g. injury, etc.). A high amount of late registrations and registrations on the spot can cause unwanted possibilities of error.
     As in case of all big relay events, 3x3 relay starting order will be set according to last year’s results. It means that last year’s best will be given the 1st number, and the others in an ascending order. By this method, the best teams will be in the first line during mass start.      
Clubs with several teams are also going to be given the numbers in this order. So it is advised to give the 1st number to the best team. The numbers of teams within clubs should be registered online and on the register paper. There is an opportunity to give fantasy names to you team.
     There are 9 different courses (AA, AB, AC, BA, BB, BC, CA, CB, CC). All members of each relay will run 3 times. The running order is bounded, which means the first runner runs 1st ,4th and 7th time, the second runner runs 2nd, 5th and 8th time, and the third runner runs 3rd, 6th and 9th time
     Every runner runs a different course each time, which means all runners runs all of the three courses, however not sure they will run it on the same order! Results will be count as one after running all three courses. So competitors will run 3 courses but it will count only as one.      
    The start number bibs of the competitors will be colored on three colors. The 1-4-7 runners' are blue, the 2-5-7 runners' are magenta and the 3-6-9 runners are yellow.
    To reduce environment pollution, safety pins to the numbers will be given only to request, if it is possible, every competitors bring own safety pins to the race.
     First runners will be given the map on the hand at the mass start. All the other runners have to pick up their map from a stand on the open-air stage on their own! On the stand, maps are organized on ascendant order from right to left, maps of a team are under each other on an erect column. On the top, the second runner's and beneath that, the third's and so on to the 9th. All the maps contain the number of the team and the number of the runner (for example: 23-8, which mean relay 23, runner 8).
     Every time the top map must be picked. To make competition easier, the color of the map will be the same as the color of the start number bib of the current runner.
     The state of the competition can be observed clearly during the race, by the amount of the maps on the stand. Which team has the less maps, they are likely the best.
After the stand competitors have to run some meters to the actual start marked on the map which is marked with a control flag.
     Controls of different courses are placed closely to each other in some cases. But take good care of checking the code of the controls.
The first and longer part of the courses will be in forested areas. This part will be on the map’s upper side with the scale of 1:4000/2,5m. After this part competitors will reach the spectator control where they have to run the second and shorter part of the course. You have to check every time you pass through spectator control.
    The shorter part will be on the map’s lower side with the scale of 1:2000/1m. This map will depict all trees and bushes in the open area. Controls will be placed really close to each other. Take good care of checking the code of the controls.
At the end of each course, runners will reach the last control then, they need to run about 60 meters on a marked route to the finish. Changeover can be done by touching hands. After the changeover, the arrived competitor must punch in the finish as well, then the SI  card must be out read in the finish tent.
ATTENTION! Please be careful to clear your SI card only after the outreading, if you do not, all results of you and your teammates will be disqualified!
After outreading, the map must be put in a bag, which is marked with the start number of the team. After this, runners will be given refreshment.
When stepping in to the change at the start of the next course, you have to clear you SI. Pay attention to clear you SI, because if you do not do so, there will not be enough space for the next course.
The process of the relay will be clarified 15 minutes before the mass start!
