Maps and terrains
All competitions will take place on new maps. The fieldwork will be done in late 2013 and early 2014 by Bulgaria’s well-known mapper Dian Bonev. The forests in Targovishte region are mainly mixed forests with big parts of oak and beech – good runnability! Lots of little creeks, gullies, ditches, trenches, foxhowls and rocks add some thrill to the interesting and hilly terrain. For last years maps go to: www.variant5.org/velikdencup.
