The WOC Tour 2010 is a 5-day public orienteering event organized by WOC 2010. All races will be held in the same terrain as the WOC. Challenging courses will be offered in relatively fast terrain typical for the area. In addition to the races, we will create a fantastic setting around the fight for the WOC medals. On the same days as events 2 and 3, Hovedløpet (Norway’s youth championship for 14-16 year old orienteerers) will be organized. Everybody will have the possibility to be a spectator at these races. Junior athletes will fight for Craft-cup points at events 1 and 3.
WOC 2010 starts with a spectacular Sprint Final in the centre of Trondheim on Sunday 8th August (afternoon). There will be entertainment and a general get together at the Town Square – not to be missed!
How to get to Trondheim:
Trondheim Airport Værnes is located 35 km east of Trondheim. You can also get to Trondheim easily by train, bus or car. The distance Oslo - Trondheim is approx. 500 km.
