Todays leg is leg 5 from the Hungarian competition Borsod Kupa 2007 at 2007-06-02 for the category M21E. The tip is from Stig Alvestad – thank you very much to Stig!

First take a look at the map without routes – and think about how you would attack this leg (if the image is too small, you may click on it to get it larger – and click outside the image again to close it):

Update 2020: WebRoute

Then you can take a look at how the runners who have drawn their route choice solved this leg:

  1. The best leg time was 14:13 (!) by Ádám Kovács (1:37:22 at the end), with a route going all the way around. Exiting the control like the light blue, but then running down almost until the asphalt road. Then north-east and finally up in the big valley. No orienteering needed and only ~15m of extra climb compared to the route of Krejci!

  2. yes it’s true! I won this leg:) I ran almost the same like the blue one except the last 200 m.
