OOcup/2021 will be held as planned

Right now it is already possible to organize sport events without limitations regarding number of participants, which means that unless something really unexpected happens, we will organize OOcup as planned. As a matter of fact last weekend we have already organized a race – Slovenian national championships in Long/Relay.

The first entry deadline for OOcup has been prolonged till 25th of June, so keep that in mind if you want to enter at lowest possible rate.

Here is a map sample from Ultimate map Stage 1!

Why not Ultimate in 2021?

We are getting optimistic

Finally we are getting seriously optimistic about this year’s edition of OOcup ๐Ÿ˜Ž! The anti-Covid measures are loosening in Slovenia on an almost daily basis and more and more it looks like it will be possible to organize the event this summer. To facilitate your decision to enter the race, we prolonged the early bird entry deadline until June 25th. You still don’t have to pay anything until we ask you to do so.

If you have already entered the race after the first entry deadline, we will reduce your entry fee accordingly.

Right now we only have cca. 120 entries, which means it will probably be one of the smallest OOcup editions in a long time. Nevermind, the entries might be few, but the maps are brand new ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ‘!!

Entries are open

You can now enter OOcup/2021 at OrienteeringOnline.net. However, due to uncertain situation regarding Covid-19, we are not accepting payments at the moment. Please pay your entry fees only after we ask you to do so.

Website refreshed

We have refreshed the website a little bit during the boring Covid lockdown. Not many changes in design but it should now work faster than before. The information is updated with 2021 information, so feel free to browse around :).

Website for OOcup/2021 is now updated!

We have just updated our website with information for the next years’ edition. Although the first ideas about having OOcup in Dolenjska region are a decade old, it was not before this year that we actually decided to organize OOcup there and bring you to these amazing terrains. The region has not only beautiful forests to offer, but a whole lot more as you can find out here.

Covid-19 situation is still not clear, however we look optimistically towards 2021 and believe that in the middle of summer we will be able to organize the race as planned. Nevertheless, we have prolonged the first entry deadline by 2 months, so that you have plenty of time to decide whether you want to come and still enter at reduced rate. Moreover, just like in all our events in 2020 we will not keep any part of your start fee in case we are forced to cancel or postpone the event. If that happens due to Covid-19, you will get 100% refund.

OOcup/2020 is now history

Big thanks also to all the team members from France, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Croatia  – you were the best, like always ;).
