Kvarner bay challenge 2015: 28. February – 1. March

Kindly note that we will organize KBC one week later than initially planned, that is on first weekend in March from 28th February to 1st of March.

Like in last 20 years, Lipica open (www.lipicaopen.com) will be held on second weekend of March. In 5 days between Lipica open and KBC it will be possible to take part in training camp in Croatia/Slovenia. Trainings will be possible in Istria (both Croatian and Slovenian part) and in Kras region, where Lipica open will be held.

More information to follow here and on Lipica open website.

2015 – two events!


Long time no hear :). We have some news about orienteering on Cres island next year; in winter we will organize Kvarner bay challenge 28. February. – 1. March on enlarged map Tramuntana. Furthermore, we will organize a 4 day event Bubo cup in August 2015 (1. – 4. August). No worries about possible heat in summer; the old oak forest is giving nice shade in full vegetation season. Even more importantly, race start will be early; from 8:00 to 9:00. According to this we will regulate max. number of competitors per class as well as needed number of start points.

So, 100% orienteering and 100% Mediterranean experience is waiting for you in 2015!

First stage over

Rain, rain… but no problem! We had a very nice competition with as many as 50% of the locals, inhabitants of Beli, involved. Yes, 25 of about 50 inhabitants were invloved either racing or helping in organization. Really nice feeling. Tomorrow longer distances and sunny weather!!

Danas puno kiše, ali nadamo se da ste uživali na stazama! Zanimljivost – danas je bilo u natjecanje uključeno 50% stanovništva mjestašca Beli, znači 25 od oko 50 ;). Sutra duže staze i sunce!!

Race information is here.

Info točku na cilju ćemo otvoriti u subotu u 10:00, znači 2 sata prije prvog starta. Zadnja 4 kilometra ceste do mjesta okupljanja su nešto slabiji makadam. Zbog kišnog vremena u zadnjim tjednima na cesti ima dosta bara, no sve se lako prolaze ;)!

Info point opens at 10:00 on Saturday, that is 2 hours before first start.
Note: the last 4 kilometers on the way to Finish area  are covered by dirt road. Due to lots of rain lately there is some water on the road, but all easily crossabe ;)!



Entries till Wednesday

Since there seem to be some last minute interest for participation at KBC, we re-opened entries at OrienteeringOnline. They will be opened till Wednesday, which is the very last day to make entry. Therefore we will not publish Start lists earlier than Thursday morning.
By the way, we are especially glad about the fact that there will be quite a few locals from Cres island at KBC, adults and children, trying orienteering for the very first time in their lives!


Prijave na OrienteeringOnline omogućene su do srijede! Startne liste i zadnje informacije pred utrku objaviti ćemo najkasnije u četvrtak ujutro.
Osobito nas veseli činjenica, da će na utrci Izazov Kvarnera sudjelovati i petnaestak domaćina s Cresa, kako odraslih tako i djece!
