Stage 4 and Mr. Putin – START LIST CHANGED

Vist of Russian president is one of the strangest things our team had to cope with in 15 years of organizing OOCup. And one of the more frustrating as well.

The last information about Mr. Putin’s visit is very different from what we were told by authorities some weeks ago. Therefore we are shifting the start list to morning, with first start at 10:00 o’clock! Please check OrienteeringOnline for your new start time. New start list will also be published in Finish area of stage 3.

If for any reason you will not be able to reach the place for your new start time, you WILL STILL BE ABLE TO START IN THE AFTERNOON. If coming in the afternoon, please try to stick to original start list. It will be possible to start till 18:00.

Sorry for complications, but we are just trying to make things easier for you.

Some info:

  1. No matter when you start your result will be valid and you will be classified.
  2. Free of charge chairlift is planned from 9:00 till 18:00. Each runner is entitled to 1 free lift.

OUR RECOMMENDATION based on information we have:

  1. Try to get to start according to your new start time.
  2. Try to get to Soriška planina early and avoid roads between Kranjska gora and Jesenice between 10:00 and 18:00.
  3. If staying in Kranjska gora/Tarvisio/Villach area, go back to your accommodation in the evening and not right after the race.
  4. Check for latest information regarding closed roads and traffic jams.
