Several months after the first post and many thousands hours of work done since then, the WTOC 2019 team publishes the Invitation Bulletin.
Summer days in Idanha-a-Nova and Monsanto are hot, and field work has been pushed hard to bring the best out of those terrains despite the heat.
So the Bulletin 2 is ready for download and more detailed information about the venue is now available.
The preliminary program has changed, the competition areas redefined and the stages have been reordered along the event. The final choice give us the expectation of having found the best combination we can choose from.
There is now a preliminary course technical information available, based on all the planning already made.
We expect all top athletes start to plan the visit to Portugal shortly for the trip in June next year. In a while the accommodation details will be published.
But here is more than WTOC 2019 in the roadmap. A nearby relevant ECTO candidate event in similar terrains is being prepared for the weekend before the Championships, in order to have a taste of the look of the competition areas for training purposes in a formal competition.
During the week and immediately after the official competitions, a Open Public Event will be set for every one who wants to get a grip of the challenges presented to the best Trail Orienteers of the world, in the same terrains and courses.
At this moment, the website is a mirror of the published WTOC Bulletin 2, but expect some new posts in a near future with updated information.
All boulders are in place for the WTOC 2019. We have check them all.
Feel free to mail us to ask for some information you may need.
Welcome to Portugal and to Idanha-a-Nova!
