Here are preliminary course lengths for Cerkno Cup 2016. You think, they are too short? :) We'll see after the races.

M45/M50, M55/M60 courses are the same. Competitors can choose age appropriate category and still get ranking for the Slovenian league.

Cerkno, February 20th. Due to refugee crisis we are a little bit late with the final info on Cerkno Cup 2016. Military barracks in Logatec, that were to be used as a great competition centre for 2016 will be reserved in case of need for the migrant crisis. We have decided not to use that competition center and have changed the details about the competition. Do not worry! :) Still 2 trainings, 3 stages and Trail-O competition are waiting for you on our special terrains! Welcome!

Stage 1 - middle distance

Date: 22. 7. 2016
First start: 14:00
Map: Kalce, ISOM, 1:10 000, E = 5m, July 2016
Course planner: Igor Bončina, Matjaž Štanfel
Mapper: Matjaž Štanfel


Fairly fast terrain for this type of Karst. First stage should offer gentle introduction to demanding Slovenian terains.

Stage 2 - long distance

Date: 23. 7. 2016
First start: 10:00
Map: Lome, ISOM, 1:10 000, E = 5m, July 2016
Course planner: Klemen Kenda
Mapper: Daniel Lebar


Most of the long distance race will be held on a renewed part of the map from 1997, which has not been used for orienteering for a long time. Terrain is very detailed, very demanding. You can expect Cerkno Cup to be decided at this stage.

Stage 3 - middle distance

Date: 24. 7. 2016
First start: 10:00
Map: Lome, ISOM, 1:7 500 or 1:10 000, E = 5m, July 2016
Course planner: Klemen Kenda
Mapper: Daniel Lebar


Mixture of detailed karst, where good map reading is crucial, and longer legs with a more continental character. Make no mistakes or you can ruin your final results here!

Training 1 - long

Date: 20. 7. 2016
Open from: 16:00 - 19:00
Map: Predgriže 2, ISOM, 1:10 000, E = 5m, 2013
Course planner: Peter Tušar
Mapper: Mile Stevanovic and others


In the middle of hard core karst, there is a patch of a lovely continental terrain. One of the first, that were mapped in Slovenia. Generations of orienteers grew up here! Not really relevant for Cerkno Cup performance, but definitely a joyful course!

Official training - middle

Date: 21. 7. 2016
Open from: 16:00 - 19:00
Map: Predgriže 2, ISOM, 1:7 500, E = 5m, 2010 (fast revision 2016)
Course planner: Gregor Hvala
Mapper: Cesare Tarabocchia and others, Gregor Hvala


Karst part of one of the famous maps in Slovenia. Legendary terrain, which amazed many well known runners. Most recently David Andresson, before him Chris Terkelsen, Emil Wingstedt and Jarkko Houvila. Although forest has been under a lot of stress due to forestry work and sleet disaster from a couple of years ago, the experience is still great!

Trail-O - National Championship

Date: 23. 7. 2016
First start: 12:00
Map: Lome, ISOM, 1:5 000, E = 5m, 2016
Course planner: Emil Kacin
Mapper: Daniel Lebar


Slovenian competitors take top10 positions in the unofficial European Cup in Trail-O. We also have one World Champion title from 2007! It's fun also for orienteering runners to calm down some time and try this discipline. Welcome!
