Elite Team - 11 December 2020


The Land of Venice 5 Day Orienteering Competition organised around the IOF World Cup Finals
The big reveal – did your 20th anniversary logo get chosen?

Following the MOC Championships currently scheduled for March 2021 PWT Italy will be hosting another event in the same area. It will be held in September 2021 in conjunction with the IOF Orienteering World Cup.

PWT Italy is organising five spectacular days of orienteering in the Veneto region of Northern Italy. Participants will have an opportunity to orienteer on the very same maps that will be used for the middle and long distance World Cup finals in Cansiglio. In the foothills of the Italian alps Cansiglio is one of the largest forest in Italy. It is a karst area filled with intricacy as can be seen in the sample map below.
We have nothing else like it in Italy. Come see it for yourself!

The event will end with a spectacular grand finale in Cortina d’Ampezzo, which will be the host town of 2026 Winter Olympic games.
Come run in the woods then watch your hero’s run in the streets!
