Time for European Championships in fast Italian terrain
The international orienteering season will come to an intense end, when the European Orienteering Championships and World Cup Round 3 are decided over three sprint races in northern Italy in the coming days.
Verona, Soave and Vicenza in Italy’s Veneto region host a Sprint, a Sprint Relay and a Knock-Out Sprint respectively.
All three terrains offer flat and fast orienteering – primarily on hard surface in the historic cities with some park and open areas along the way.
If you are not travelling to Italy to follow races at the arenas, there will be a high quality TV-production on IOF TV from all finals at EOC.
IOF’s experienced commentators Katherine Bett and Jonas Merz will guide you through the races in English.
Good luck to our Irish Team runners Niamh, Eadaoin, Alice, Colm and Josh. They are looked after by Paul for the trip.
