Big thanks to all of you who made this event an experience to remember. Participants, organizers and the very friendly locals.

It seems that whenever OOcup is organized in Lokve area, it's labeled as the most challenging ever by many of participants (remember 2011? :). We have stopped counting people telling "that was the most difficult orienteering race of my life, physically and technically ...". Indeed, the terrain is very demanding and you must be very tired now. But you DID IT and you'll have something to talk about to your grandchildren :)!

Next year something completely different - from one single Finish arena in 2015 we are switching to 3 countries during the 5 days. Some top orienteering fun to be expected. Centered in Tarvisio and visiting some very nice places in the region, OOcup/2016 is something you don't want to miss. More information to follow after we get some (hopefully deserved) rest.

You can see last day Elite maps at our FB page.

Thanks and see you around.

We have added Hostel Nova Gorica to our accommodation offer and due to intereset by some keen orienteers in their best years we have also added two new classes: M/W50 Ultimate.

Accommodation in Lokve village is almost fully booked. However, there are still some very interesting options, north, south and west from the Event center. Goriska brda, small wine growing region NW of Nova Gorica is definitely one of them. The area is known for perhaps best wines of Slovenia, orchards and great food. Many different accommodation options are available.

Online entries are now open!



14.9.2014

Website for OOcup/2015 is now updated with some basic information, but we will add more a bit later on, especially about the additional programme (we plan afternoon fun race series, small concert etc..). 2015 edition will be a bit special, as we will only use one Finish area and it will be possible to camp right next to it.

But don't forget that already in early March you can get a full taste of Slovenian karst terrain at Lipica Open. Lipica Open is an event with tradition longer than 20 years, however it is only since 2012 that it is organized by the same crew as OOCup, which means you can expect equal quality standard as at OOCup.

Did you know that Soča river, which is probably the most beautiful Slovenian river, is just some 20km away from Lokve? And this is how Soča looks at its beginning...


Soča river - definitely worth a visit

TIPS

Five days, five areas, 1 Finish arena!


OOcup/2015 will only use one Finish area (Lokve village), however at two Stages competitors will be taken by shuttle buses to and from competition terrain (Nemci and Vratarski hrib Stages). This concept has been successfully tested at Bubo cup 2014 and we're happy to offer it at OOCup 2015! Note that you can camp right at the Finish area during the competitions, which means that you don't need a car during OOcup/2015. Check accommodation section!


Combine with Bubo cup!


Bubo cup 2015 on Cres island in Croatia starts only 2 days after OOcup! All OOcup participants can run Bubo at discounted prices. Check Bubo cup and grab your chance for perfect O-summer!
