Antalya is proud to welcome elite orienteers from all over the world to join in Stage 1 of the World Cup in 2014. Orienteering in Turkey has progressed at a unique pace throughout its short history and is now recognized as one of the popular countries for high-level orienteering events with its very versatile and challenging terrain.
Antalya in particular, offers a choice of terrain ranging from sand dunes with small bushes challenging visibility to pine forests with steep hills challenging endurance. Antalya has hosted 6 WRE events up to now, including the Orienteering Cup for the Confederation of Orienteering Federations of the Mediterranean Countries (COMOF) in February, 2013.
Antalya O Days is the public event organized every year, this time running in parallel to the World Cup Event 1 of 2014. Antalya O Days hosted more than 2000 runners from over 20 countries in 2013, in all classes ranging from age 10 to 65+.
This unique region now welcomes you to witness several of its most challenging terrains with famous historical sites nearby in addition to the unique chance of swimming and sunbathing in February!
