Cerkno Cup is the only big Slovenian orienteering competition to support development of orienteering in the local community - by maps and by financial aid!


The organiser invests all of the funds to support orienteering schools in Cerkno, Idrija, Spodnja Idrija and Črni Vrh nad Idrijo. Also - maps are primarily dedicated to youth trainings!


23st Cerkno Cup is here! The race has grown with the independance of Slovenia! Traditional complex stony terrains will be mixed with alpine forest and subalpine town!

Why should you come?

  • Great maps and terrain

    Since early 90s' Cerkno Cup has offered great terrains and good maps. We've expanded to the most demanding areas in Slovenia ...

  • Challenging courses

    Cerkno Cup in last years offered a bit conservative courses, this year we promise you to take full advantage of our terrains ...

  • Rich side programme

    Would you enjoy brass band from Cerkno (balkan style), maybe some quiet Trail Orienteering, swimming pool or sauna or just retreat to the mountains?

  • Additional trainings

    A couple of demanding training sessions will be available in the nearby maps before the Cerkno Cup.

  • Reasonable entry fees

    Even if you miss the early dates for your entry, you will still not go bankrupt. Ask about discount for bigger groups.

  • Versatile accommodation

    Stay in a top mountain resort hotel, hostel, private apartments or in a camp site or use the hard floor! What suits you best?

  • Exploration of Slovenia

    Event centre is in the middle of the mountains. Nice peaks are within reach! In 30 minutes you can reach Bohinj, coast or Ljubljana in 1h.

  • To help our youth

    We're all volunteers! Our mission is to develop orienteering in Slovenia and primarily to ensure quality training and finance for our youth.
