Flanders 3 Days 2014

Hamok invites you to the Flanders 3 Days 2014.

3 days of quality orienteering in surprising terrain near Genk. Start orienteering through fast, varied forests with detailed sand dunes. Slow down when the visibility is reduced. Then the earth starts to rise. Climb the spoil tips rising over 100m above the surroundings, admire the landscape, master the gullies and enjoy the downhill!

In this terrain it is easy to set courses with a lot of climbing and downhill running. That's part of the game, but the main focus is on general orienteering skills. Special care will be taken for courses 9 and shorter so they are not too exhausting for the participants.

Children

Free day care will be available.

Child-O will be organised every day.

Only children running alone in H-10/D-10 will be placed on the podium, but all children running this will receive a present.
