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

Beautiful stage at Le Tumet!

Great stage today at Le Tumet! We have seen many happy faces and here are three of them; Isia Basset, clear leader in W21E (middle) with Cécile Foltzer (left) and Juliette Basset (right) :).

Below are MW21E maps from today.

See you tomorrow on Les Plans d’Hotonnes!

Tomorrow Le Tumet, donation will cover stolen SI stations!

After the tough 3rd stage in Les Moussieres, we are moving to Le Tumet, where some very nice forest is waiting for you. We are sure you will enjoy it!

Hereby we also want to thank to Mr. Jürgen Ziesche, whose generous donation will fully cover expenses of our SI stations stolen at Col de la Faucille.  This donation was a really nice surprise for us. Big, big thanks from the whole team!

Below you can find maps from MW Elite Stage 3.

 

 

 

Today Les Moussieres part 2

Yesterday we were very happy to see that all went well. Good atmosphere returned to our team! Hopefully you had a good day at Les Moussieres as well!

Today another stage in the same Arena with slightly different type of orienteering.

Problems at Stage 1 and official results

Not the easiest day for us at the Col de la Faucille.

Summary: 3 controls stolen before the race (we realized this during morning checking and replaced with new ones), 1 control stolen after morning checking (90), 2 controls misplaced during the race (50, 62). We are not sure what to think about this situation. We analyzed the day thoroughly and you can rest assured that all controls were originally placed in the right places – every control at OOcup is checked 3 times; pre-marking, setting, checking. In almost 20 years of OOcup we have not had a single missing control or a control in the wrong place.

As soon as we realized that something was wrong we placed controls back to original positions. About 100 people ran on course with misplaced or missing control. Finally we decided to void all legs which include one of the problematic controls: 90, 62 or 50.

You can check official results at OrienteeringOnline.

You can check photos on our Facebook page.

We hope that tomorrow we have a less stressful day.

 

 

 

Stage 1 is finished, tomorrow race in Haut Valromey

Stage 1 is now finished, we hope that you enjoyed terrain of Col de la Faucille. Official results will be published later on due to stolen/moved controls during the race.

IMPORTANT information regarding tomorrow’s race. We noted that many runners mistakenly believe that the race is in Les Moussieres in Jura department. Information in the Bulletin (overview map, GPS coordinates and QR code) are correct. This means that the race will be held in Les Moussieres forest in Haut Valromey (Le Petit-Abergement).

IMPORTANT notes for Stage 1

Depending on number of regular tourists parking place on Col de la Faucille might get tight. To prevent parking problems as much as possible, we kindly ask you to:

  1. Use as few cars as possible. If you have opportunity, please share car with your friend.
  2. Try to come earlier than you would normally. The sooner you arrive the greater the chance to find your spot comfortably.
  3. Use cable car from Mijoux (free of charge) if Col de la Faucille parking is full. In case of Parking on Col de la Faucille gets completely full, we will place signposts “Col de la Faucille COMPLET” on the exit from Mijoux. Our volunteer at the Camping car parking close to Cable car will help you with small map of possible parking places in Mijoux. To use cable car you need to show your start number or use the magic word “OOcup”.

IMPORATNT: Don’t forget about Medical certificate

The race is coming soon and many of you still haven’t sent us less than one year old Medical certificate of non-contraindication to participate in competitive orienteering as requested in Invitation and in the message displayed after making entry. That is OK as long as you deliver it upon registration in Competition office or send it by email before the race. We can accept your certificate in either digital or paper format.

It is possible to use your own template or OOcup Medical certificate.

Please do not forget about this, since you are only allowed to compete if you have either FFCO licence (French runners) or Medical certificate. If you don’t have one of those, we are not allowed to time your race according to French law.
