Welcome Words – Mayor of Idanha-a-Nova

The County of Idanha-a-Nova is very pleased to cooperate in the organisation of the World Trail Orienteering Championships 2019 (WTOC’19). We are very honoured to welcome all the athletes and their teams and friends who will participate in this major sports event. Our County has excellent natural characteristics for all sorts of outdoor sports. These unique characteristics have attracted several national and international Orienteering competitions to Idanha-a-Nova in recent years.

The world award granted to Monsanto’s Orienteering Course in 2013 increased our duty to do ever more and better for this sport. Idanha-a-Nova has all infrastructures needed to meet the standards required by major and prestigious competitions such as the WTOC’19.We count once more on the priceless support and commitment of the Portuguese Orienteering Federation and ADFA, whose outstanding organisational skills deserve the highest praise.

A final word for all those who will honour us with their presence in our County in 2019. We welcome you warmly to Idanha-a-Nova and we wish you a very pleasant stay. We hope that every aspect of your visit will make you want to return again and again.

We wait for you in Idanha-a-Nova!
