Decision time!

Dear runners,

1) In reference to the current pandemic situation and big uncertainty of the legal issues which may occur during the summer, we’ve decided to postpone for the next year the idea of 5-days Wawel Cup (Zelazko and surroundings, Błędów Desert). We hope that next year we will create a real celebration of Polish orienteering!

2) Despite the current situation, it’s really important for us to continue our long-term tradition. The formula of the event depends on the legal and pandemic situation on July. We are taking into consideration „quite-normal” competition or only training with SI. This year we want to come back to the 3-days formula and concentrate on preparing demanding stages in the heart of Jura’s rocks.

10.07.2020 – Mirów-Niegowa
11.07.2020 – Skały Rzędkowickie
11.07.2020 – Trail Orienteering Online
12.07.2020 – Morsko

We hope that you will be able to spend nice, family weekend on Jura! What’s more sport’s rivalry will be on high level. (We will definetly focus on this part of competition.)

We also would like to emphasise that orienteering interval form perfectly fits to social distancing idea. During orieentering race you can take care of your physical and mental health!

We will inform you about the details of this year edition very soon.

3) Last but not least, we would like to inform that all person who already paid for 5-days Wawel Cup, would be contacted via phone/e-mail. We will set the conditions of entry fee refunding/postponing. We hope for your understanding in this matter.

Happy Easter!

We would like to wish you all the Easter time full of happiness, health and love! May the New Life will be a blessing for a better time!

We hope that we will meet with you this year. May you feel the hope and peace during this Easter holiday. Happy Easter!

Wawel Cup – possible alternative date
