General Terrain Description

The maps for the European Orienteering Championships Ticino Switzerland 2018 and 5-Days.

There are very different terrains, in a distance from 5 km up to 35 km from the Event Centre. The altitude of the race areas is between 300 and 1100 m above sea level.

All terrains have sometimes steep slopes. Some of them are compact beech and chestnut forests, mainly with good runnability, others have stony ground instead and are slower, whilst others have more open parts. In all cases there are few paths and the fine contours and details of the maps require good technical capabilities.
