Dear Orienteers,

Exploring the wide oakforests of north-­eastern Bulgaria and getting an impression of Bulgarian cuisine and culture during orthodox Easter festivities: That’s what the orienteering event Velikden-Cup offers in 2013.

Maps and terrains. All competitions take place on new maps, mapped in late 2012 and early 2013 by Bulgaria’s well-known mapper Dian Bonev. The forests in Targovishte region are mainly mixed forests with big parts of oak and beech. Mainly very good runnability. Lots of little creeks, gullies, ditches, trenches, foxholes and rocks add some thrill to the interesting and hilly terrain. Last year’s maps: variant5.org/ velikdencup.

Attractions. «Variant 5»-Cup can easily be combined with an extended holiday in Bulgaria. From the event center it takes only two hours to the Black Sea coast.

Climate. Spring time climate in north-eastern Bulgaria is generally very mild (15 to 25 degrees Celsius), with a good chance of hot and sunny days – and some chance of refreshing rain.

Competition classes.
Women: 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 21E, 21B, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60, 65 and open classes.

Punching system. For the competitions the electronical time-taking system SPORTident will be used. Competitors without their own SI badge may rent a badge.

Training possibilities. There is a wide range of training maps in Targovishte area suitable for trainings. Please let the organizer know your needs.

Results and Prizes. The four days of «Variant 5»-Cup are separate competitions. For each race, the first three runners in each class will be awarded a prize. The first three places in classes M21E and W21E on the WRE day will be honoured with prize money: 1st place 300 €, 2nd place 125 €, 3rd place 50 €.
