ORIENTEERING IN SANDSTONES
Someone may still remember the WOC 1972 in Staré Splavy or World Cup final 1994 near Jičín.
Or you may have run the once famous czech 5-days or recently Bohemia 5-days or Prague Easter.
Then you may also remember the black dots, dashes, blots and dumplings - there were plenty of them on the maps. Rocks, in this case of SANDSTONE -
tons of sand turned into stone and exposed after the prehistoric sea had left the area.
Nowadays, these rocky formations offer not just a beautiful sight, but also countless attractive places for control point placement.
Together with complicated relief and often steep slopes the sandstones turn the orienteering into a unique experience.
Thanks to the generally excellent runability the running feels pleasant.
However, for the elite performance you need to be strong and clever, as the areas will put you under complex inspection.
Alike in every kind of orienteering terrain, also in the sandstones you can find a couple of very special features which are worth to handle.
This training camp should disclose most of them.
