Tue, 21 Feb 2012 22:41 - Attention - vegetation changes
In the last few weeks, the National Forestry Authority has been felling trees and cutting other vegetation, and this has caused inevitable changes to the terrain. These are, of course, not the responsibility of the event organisation. There will thus be some extra paths made by the foresters and some small changes to the vegetation which have occurred too late to be shown on the map.
In the section Maps and Terrain an image of the competition area is shown with the affected area represented.

Please accept our apologies. We hope your race is not affected by these changes.
