Final details - TrailO

Final details per stage further down

Competition rules

The rules and regulations for PreO from the Swedish Orienteering Federation (SOFT) as well as this competition memo applies.

Punching system

Pre-Elite as well as Pre-A will be using the recently developed ToePunch system. The approval process is ongoing right now in IOF where the system currently has been approved for use in all competitions except the world and European championships.

The system consists of punching units that resemble the SportIdent units. Each unit applies only for a single control point/class. Since the same screens are used for more than one task/control there will be one punching unit per task there. The units will be marked like the one in the picture. The unit shown is used for Pre-Elite control point 1 and Pre-A control point 2.

Each competitor will be carrying 7 different cards for punching. One for punching at start and finish (and at any interruptions along the route) as well as 6 cards for each punching option (A E, Z).

A demonstration of the system will be available at the arena for stage 1.

There is also more information on the system homepage http://toe.yq.cz/.

Other classes will use the usual manual punching card and SportIdent for timekeeping.
