Czech championship in mountain orienteering

Czech championship in mountain orienteering was held from November 4th to November 5th 2017. The event center was situated in Všemina (eastern Moravia), the race area covered Vizovické and Hostýnské Highlands.

The competition is traditionally split to two parts (one part is held on Saturday and one part on Sunday), each with a time limit. This once the limit was 6h30 for both days. On Saturday, the competitors had to overcome all control points in FREE ORDER what is exceptional for this event. On Sunday control points were in fixed order.

The race was well organised and the hash house situated approximately in the middle of control points offered a very good refreshment to the competitors (e.g. local Czech beer included), so the weatherʼs caprices could have been surmounted with a smile. Fortunately nobody was injured during the race.
