The races in 2023 will be in Fevik and Arendal. Get an overview of the map areas by looking at the overview below.
The map at Fevik is a large sprint-map – the same map will be used for both sprint and middle distance.
Arendal – Bjørnebo
This terrain will mainly be used for the middle distance, but some parts of it are also relevant for the long distance.
The area is dominated by a lot of black: paths, roads and cliffs. The many paths make the terrain fast, but it is essential to reduce the pace when attacking the controls which are in the forest. It is very possible to pick the wrong path too!
It is a popular area for hiking, running and cycling – several of the paths are mainly used by cyclists.
The forest is a mix of many tree types, leaf and needle forest. White parts are very nice, some undergrowth – but not the worst. The middle green areas are due to oak bushes or dense spruce areas. Marches are tough to run in. Ditches and streams are usually dry and can be difficult to detect.
Arendal – Mjåvann
This terrain is for the long distance.
This is a neighbouring terrain to Bjørnebo and its name is from the lake in the northern edge of the map. Many paths here as well, but fewer than in Bjørnebo.
