38. Wawel Cup


Stage winners prize giving

As last year, we want to give greater prestige to the stage prize giving ceremonies. Therefore, they will be carried out at the WKS Wawel stadium, according to the following schedule:

11/07/2019 at 19:00 – decoration of the 1st and 2nd stage winners
13/07/2019 at 19:00 – decoration of the winners of the 3rd and 4th stage + decoration of top 3 at AGH Indoor Orienteering

And after celebration… it’s time to socialize! Evenings during the Wawel Cup are great opportunity to spend time in good company and reminisce about the old times. For this occasion, additional tables will be ready in the garden of our partner – Wawelove Restaurant.

The final prize giving ceremony, the culmination of the whole five days of running will take place on 14.07.2019 around 13:30 at the Błonia Park in Krakow. We can not wait to see you there!
