Skåne 19-25th of July 2014

Why should you choose O-Ringen in Skåne 2014? 
O-Ringen in Skåne 2014 will offer fantastic areas of orienteering. The O-Ringen Town and the whole camping area consists of well-drained sandy soil that quickly absorbs any precipitation. However, we have already ordered the sunshine and we have placed the town so you within some km can take your bike to the Baltic’s finest beaches. To get the best possible orienteering experience, we have chosen competition areas with very diverse and decisive terrain. The maps will be made by using the latest technology, and also produced by a team of the best cartographers.
So welcome to Skåne 2014 and O-Ringen’s 50th anniversary!

The O-Ringen Town

The O-Ringen Town 2014 is located at Norra Åsum, a small town just some kilometer away from the big city Kristianstad. From the O-Ringen Town you will reach several attractive tourist areas around the region of Skåne. Don’t miss Österlen in the south, well known for it’s picturesque landscape, or the beautiful beaches in Åhus.

Terrain

From O-Ringen Town, participants will travel by bus to the different stages.  Each stage will offer a new challenge and a new experience, as shown on the maps from the terrain. The terrain will vary from intricate, open coastal heath forest to hills with grand oak and beech forest. Experience and skills in both continental and nordic orienteering will be needed to successfully complete the O-Ringen week.


50 Years!

50 years is a milestone in many contexts andduring the summer of 2014
O-Ringen will be organized for the fiftieth time. The competition will bring together participants from all around the world who wants to compete in the classic five-day contest. It is obvious that the world’s biggest orienteering adventure will return to Skåne, where the competition once started. Therefore we wish to welcome you back to Skåne and O-Ringen 2014.

You will face a lot of paths and roads in the competition areas. The forests will vary from beech forest to typical terrain close to the beach.

    In tomorrows last stage of O-Ringen there will be a few classes (3–10) that will ha new start times, a couple of minutes (2–12 min) later than we planned for. The reason for this is that in some classes there are a lot of runners who are more than 90 minutes after the leader and therefore they will be starting along with the next class leader in the same starting line.
