Preliminary Technical Information
Terrain & Map

Stage 1 | 26.10.2022 | Ayvat Bendi - Long Distance
Sample Map This area offers runnable but hilly terrain with wide valleys. There are lots of gullies, many depressions, streams alongside the forest roads, small streams at the deep gullies and fallen trees. Difference of height at one slope can be up to 120m. Thorny undergrowth may slow down the pace. It is basically a beech and pine forest. Road with minor traffic, steep slopes, strong thorny bushes, small streams at the bottom of the deep gullies and the pits remained after local treasure hunting may be dangerous.
Scale: 1/10000, 1/15 000 (M/W 20A, M/W21E)
Contour Interval: 5 m

Stage 2 | 27.10.2022 | Geyik Çiftliği - Middle Distance
Sample Map This area is runnable but a hilly terrain. Lots of gullies, many depressions, streams alongside the forest roads, small streams at the deep gullies and fallen trees. Difference of height at one slope can be up to 100m. Thorny undergrowth may slow down the pace. It is basically a beech forest but with some pine areas on the upper parts.

Stage 3 | 28.10.2022 | Kadıköy Moda - Sprint
Sample Map NEW MAP!
The sprint race will be held in Moda, a popular district of Istanbul. The height difference in the race, which will be mostly on asphalt roads, is around 40 m. It is an area with buildings of recent history, under the influence of cultural texture, entertainment, food & beverage venues. The streets, which are symmetrical in some areas and irregular in some others, make it difficult to select crossing routes in the courses and make the race enjoyable.
Scale: 1/4000
Contour Interval: 2.5 m
Mapper: Aret Arapoğlu (October 2022)
Course Planner: Huzeyfe Sığırcı
Stage 4 | 29.10.2022 | Kemerburgaz City Forest - Middle Distance
Sample Map The terrain offers runnable parts but quite steep slopes and deep gullies as well. In some parts, the difference of height at one slope may reach up to 100m. The runnability is from good to very green. Slippery slopes, small streams and thorny bushes might be dangerous. Thorny undergrowth may slow your pace. The runnability is the best in young tree areas. It is a pine forest with some young parts too. There are many cobblestone roads with minor vehicle traffic.

Stage 5 | 30.10.2022 | Grand Bazaar - Supersprint
Sample Map You'll need headlamp. Don't forget to bring it with you!
The Grand Bazaar offers a short and very fast orienteering within a net of small streets. It needs high speed and concentration. The most difficult part is “multilevel” orienteering which often requires climbing stairs. The open areas might be slippery if it rains. Due to historical ground, no orienteering or spiked/stud shoes are allowed!

Contour Interval: None
