siblue_521We successfully tested "our own" system for on-line controls in Cerkno Cup. We had one to two controls in the forest at each stage and could follow the competition on-line. Please visit siBlue for more information and expect the system to be used much more in the following editions of Cerkno Cup.

Also - yesterday the head of the start - Peter Tušar (maybe you noticed that today ...) - left for JWOC to Bulgaria. His goal is to reach 1./3 at one of the competitions. We wish him good luck!

Bulletin 2 available

11.6.2014, Klemen

Not much has been publishd since the last year, but a lot has been going on. All the information is available in the Bulletin 2 (available for download below). We have around 350 entries at this moment, which pleases us a lot. The maps are being finalized at this moment by Martin Lejsek (map of Rupe; stage 1) and Daniel Lebar (map of Lome; stage 2 (WRE) & stage 3).

Be aware that due to ice storms in February the stages were moved or shifted - the terrain however, remains as attractive as possible (just check the map samples in the bulletin)!

Bulletin 2 contains: Event Programme, WRE info & training opportunities, short description of the region and overview maps, definitions of embargoed areas, recent samples of the used maps, complete old map of Lome (stages 2 and 3), estimated course lengths and wining times and some other info!


6 days of orienteering in Slovenia

21.6.2013, Klemen

Evening view from Crna Prst to Triglav. Bohinj is in between.

Provisional programme for Cerkno Cup 2014 is here! We are inviting you for a tour around Slovenia. We shall start by the beautiful alpine Bohinj lake in the heart of Triglav national park and finish at a subalpine plateau above Idrija in a technical demanding race!

slovenian_team_2013_630First medal for Slovenia in World School Orienteering Championships and 2 times 4th place. Monika Ravnikar, Peter Tusar and Manca Cvek. Any profit from Cerkno Cup will be spent for youth/junior team. Support them!

Training with Slovenian Junior Team - 3 days

  • Training Day 1 - Bohinj lake
    Bohinj map was created for summer training camps of national orienteering team. It offers very fast alpine forrest with many boulders and streams. Finish the day by swimming in the lake or visiting beautiful Julian Alps with the view towards Triglav.
  • Training Day 2 - Komenda (2 trainings)
    Komenda offers nice continental terrains. However we shall also try to give you the first taste of slovenian kast here! Continue your Slovenian tour with a walk through Ljubljana city centre, which is so calm and yet vivid in July. Great mixture of Central European and Mediteranean features.
  • Training Day 3 - official training - Godovic
    Map that is still tricky for the most experienced of orienteers! Nice old forrest with the best slovenian karst can offer! Dip into small lake (bajer) in Godovič or maybe get some more refreshment at Bela river towards your way to Idrija.

Trainings will use SI for time taking, free start times. You will have an opportunity to choose between training courses (altered map) and normal courses with 3 different lengths.

Cerkno Cup - main competition - 3 days
12 years after we rediscovered and mapped Vojsko plateau we are now for the first time using this map for a larger competition. Some believe this is the best orienteering terrain in Slovenia and did not understand, why we did not use it up until now!

  • DAY 1 (World Ranking Event candidate) - middle distance
    ISOM 1:10 000 (or 1:7 500), E = 5m, redrawn and enlarged 2014
    First taste of Vojsko; mixture of alpine forrest and karst!
  • DAY 2 - long distance
    ISOM 1:10 000 (or 1:7 500), E = 5m, redrawn and enlarged 2014
    Another chance to get back to the terrain! Can you master it on your second day?
  • DAY 3 (Slovenian Ranking Event candidate) - short long distance
    ISOM 1:7 500, E = 5m, updated and enlarged in 2013
    Rupe is yet another map that could be proclaimed as legendary! This is karst at it's finest!

After 6 days of Cerkno Cup you can easily proceed with 6 days of Croatia Open, starting in 2 days near Delnice, Croatia! Plan 12 days of demanding orienteering and visit Slovenia and Croatia, from Triglav mountain to the Adriatic sea!

For 2013 we can warmly suggest you visit our partner competition in Croatia, Delnice. You can trust us, we have been there and enjoyed a great deal although we weren't able to master the difficult terrains. :)
