In early January 2013, for the first time since 1994, the Orienteering World Cup comes to New Zealand. The first 3 races of World Cup 2013 will be held in association with the Oceania Orienteering Championships and will give Australasian orienteers an opportunity to watch and mix with the best in the world. With areas and event centres chosen specifically with spectator interest in mind this is one series of events that you cannot afford to miss.
The Carnival will include a wide variety of the best New Zealand orienteering terrain. Starting with warm-up events [Day 1 & Day 2 of a 7 Day multi day competition] in Manawatu, the real business will get under way in the complex sand dunes on the west coast of the lower North Island for World Cup 1 and the Oceania Middle Distance Championships [Day 3].
The Carnival will then move to Wellington for a high visibility Sprint Championships[Day 4]and World Cup 2 in the heart of New Zealand's capital city.
The Oceania Long Distance [Day 5] and Relay Championships will follow in the rural Wairarapa using a mixture of terrain consisting of both mature pine forest and native bush, pictured below.
The culmination of the Carnival will be two warm down events [Day 6 & 7] in sunny Hawkes Bay, the second of which will include the final World Cup race.
