38. Postás Cup 2016 Invitation

international orienteering event
9th-10th April, 2016.  Szárliget

Event format

2-day, individual competition, 1st day middle distance, 2nd day long distance with combined result. Hungarian national ranking events. On the afternoon of day 1. there will be a separate relay race. 


zuppaminta2.JPGThe event takes place on and around Zuppa Topwhich is situated at 385m height on the Southern side of the Gerecse Mountain in the Transdanubian Range. The geology near the surdace show remains of an ancient sea, mostly limestone and dolomite. This creates the conditions underfoot and the relief. IN places steep, rocky sides and flat tops, elsewhere small ridges and valleys follow each other, creating variety and a highly technical terrain. Vegetation cover includes oak and planted conifer forest, mixed with karst bush, open and semi open areas. Runnability of the clear felled areas, created by forestry operations, is variable.

zuppaminta1.JPGZuppa Top was the scene of many events even prior to the use of coloured orienteering maps. Later the map has been updated and used many times, the last time in 1996. The Postás Cup used this area twice (1983, 1987), of which the year 1983 marked the advent of the first, unofficial World Cup.

Map: in 1:10 000 and 1:15 000 scale, surveyed in 2016.
