Mapping for OOcup/2017 just about to be finished

Mapping for OOcup/2017 is just about to be finished. While some small sections still need to be mapped and some parts of the new maps polished, a group of our mappers will be very soon off to map for the next year. Below you can see the difference in mapping style between 1997 and 2017.

Apart from mapping, we’ve been very busy organizing in last 2 months. In March we did Lipica open and just last weekend Easter4 was organized by our small but dedicated team. Now we are fully in for OOcup!





2018 – France!

Well, in 2018 OOcup is going fully international! Next year the race will be organized in Ain department in France. Just like always at OOcup – some amazing terrain will be on the program.



Optional bus – pick up location in Ljubljana

As mentioned earlier, we will organize optional bus from Ljubljana to the stages. This might be convenient for anyone traveling without the car…
The pick up location can be seen here!

In the meantime a recent photo from terrain. Seems we will have some fast sections as well this year :)!


Optional bus from Ljubljana to Finish areas will be organized

Optional shuttle bus will be organized for competitors staying in Ljubljana for the price of 35€ for all 5 days. It is not possible to take ticket for less than 5 days. The bus will start from the southern edge of Ljubljana (still within Ljubljana ring), exact location to be published later on. Definitely the bus stop will be easily reachable by public transport. This way we want to make it as convenient as possible for all of you staying in the city, so you basically do not need a car during the 5 days. Note that there are quite a few reasonably priced hostels in Ljubljana, which might be an interesting combination for those traveling on low budget.


And btw., you can now enter OOcup/2017 at OrienteeringOnline.

Mapping in full swing

Winter is approaching quickly, therefore we are trying to use the still snow free days as well as possible… At the moment mapping for OOcup is ongoing in 3 different areas by three different mappers. Soon we will show you some more bits of what we’re doing :).




OOcup/2017: 24.-28. July

In the last post we forgot to write the date of OOcup/2017. It is 24.-28. July. Just like this year, training camp before the event will be possible, as well as connection with Bubo cup on Cres island (1.-4. August).

Terrain will be nice and challenging like always at OOcup. In September we will publish more information!


OOcup 5 days, 3 countries is now history

A bit strange feelings to finish this project which occupied our minds for such a long time. It was definitely the most complicated OOcup to organize, but seeing your reactions after the race looks like it was worth it! Thank you very much for coming and being part of the biggest OOcup so far!

Big thanks goes also to Commune di Tarvisio, Regione Autonoma Friuli Venezia Giulia, our orienteering friends from Italy and Austria and of course the members of the OOCup team, which is by the way, an extraordinary mix of youth and experience.

Final results are published at OrienteeringOnline, many nice photos you can find on our Facebook page.

Next year OOcup will be organized in fine karst areas south of Ljubljana. It will be nice!

In spring of 2017 you can join us at:

Lipica open 11. – 15. March
Easter4 14. – 17. April

Both of this events will offer some high quality orienteering! More info to be published in September.



See you around,
