World Champion on the Wawel Cup!

While going throug this year’s Wawel Cup participants, one may spot both many foreigner’s as well as well-known names. We are more than happy that one of them is the OK Orion runner – Yuri Omelchenko. He gained his World Champion title in 1995 (the year in which the manager of this year’s Wawel Cup was born). His best performance was in middle, in the championships held in Detmold, Germany. Apart from this success, he gained two silver medals in championships in 2003 and 2004. He is also a holder of 3 medals from European Orienteering Championships and he won the World Cup twice. What a career! This year, the runners falling into M45 category will have the chance to compete with the champion. Can’t wait to see who is going to win it!

Wawel Cup 2017

There is no much time left to this year’s Wawel Cup, but we already want to invite You all, Dear Participants and those who cannot join us this time, to next year’s 36. Wawel Cup! Again we will be back in the North and, alike this year, we want to offer you 5 day run in diversifed terrain. Two stages will be held in Olkusz. Running through medieval post-mine pits might be quite an exam for orienteering skills. We are planning to held one of the phases on Bledowska Desert – absolutely exceptional place due its specifics. During Wawel Cup we cannot miss rocky terrains, so after 7 years we will be back in Jaroszowiec. our event will take place like it used to be: between 5 and 9 July 2017. In few weeks time, will be happy to hand you a special leaflet about basic information on Wawel Cup 36. Therefore we hope that…

…see You!

We have prepared for you the tab “Terrains” with the photos presenting the venue of this year’s Wawel Cup. The competition will take place partially in technically difficult Bronaczowa’s ravines, among block of flats and along Młynówka Królewska Park and in forest of good visibility in Racławka Valley. This year’s terrain enables us to create interesting routes and certainly we will make the best of it!
