Map: Oirschotse Heide
Start: 09:30 - 12:00
Description: The third stage will be held at the Dutch military training grounds of Oirschot. This day will be organised at the east part of the map. In the middle of this terrain a huge sand plane, surrounded by pine forest parcels is a challenge for your azimuth skills. Especially in the east part with an area called “the field of knolls” and in the west a mosaic of tracks. The nickname of the map is “where God created sand”. Extreme good runnability.

Description: The last stage will be organized on the west part of the Dutch military training grounds of Oirschot. Very detailed contour, plenty of land form features.

Alternately irregular network of meandering tracks combined with straight paths. Mainly good to slower runnability.
