Awesome Bledowska Desert

In our Moday’s news 4 weeks ago we presented the information on the stage I terrain… and it is high time for news about awesome Bledowska Desert! Wow, how this time goes quickly – there is only 71 days left to the competition!


We have yet another gift for you for the Wawel Cup 36. closure. To those who has not yet seen our previous news, below you will find parts of new Jacek Morawski’s map – we have it complete :) Stage V competition center will be located near the viewpoint at Czubatka, from what you will be able to observe emotion-laden rivalry during desert-style handicap. Beside Desert, which itself is a great attraction, there will be interesting subtle contour details, running on half-opened terrain, a bit of rocks, and if you are interested: a bath in the lake! We will do our best to make the last stage both a stunning spectacle to watch and technically challening competition!

“Generally I like this terrain very much and I consider it as one of the most unique and interesting among those I have seen in Poland, so I really hope it will be a real firecracker! :-)” – Jacek Morawski

“As usual, Wawel Cup could not be held without Jura’s rocky terrain. This year it will be exactly the same….” The part of last year’s bulletin shows what is awaiting us in stage IV. Typical Jura terrain with quite a big number of stones, in addition: long courses with excellent run visibility. Something that Wawel Cup is already associated with! There is also an additional treat planned for some of the categories: the opportunity to practice navigation skills with a map scale 1:15000. This is an excellent chance to train before Autumn Polish Championship! Below goes the part of the old map, but the new one will be prepared for you by well-known and favourite map maker – Włodzimierz Dyzio.
