1. The eighth event in the Cyprus Services Orienteering League for the 2011-2012 Season will be held on Fri 23 Mar 12 and will take place at Kurion Stadium, Episkopi, hosted by Episkopi Garrison.  Details of the event are as follows:


Event Details 

Date: Friday 23 March 2012.

Location: Registration will take place at the Kurion Stadium Car Park, Episkopi, WSBA.

Travel:  If travelling from the east, exit the A6 Motorway at either the Kolossi or Episkopi exits and follow the B6 towards Paphos. Kurion Stadium is located between Episkopi Village and Episkopi Garrison, shortly after Kurion Amphitheatre.  If travelling from the west, exit the A6 Motorway at the Paramali exit and take the B6 towards Limassol.  A marker will be placed on the B6 at the entrance to Kurion Stadium.  The course is located entirely outside of the Episkopi Garrison secure perimeter.

Timings: Registration will be available from 0930 hrs and the course will be open from 0945 hrs. Last start will be at 1130 hrs and the course will close at 1245 hrs.


A Course - A moderately technical course of approximately 6.0 kms

B Course - A less technical course of approximately 4.0 kms.

Terrain: The ground is mixed open bondu crossed by plenty of tracks and paths.  In places though, the bondu is dense and difficult to pass directly through.  There are nice runnable tracks in the centre of the area and there are some steep-sided spurs to the north.  The course does enter the military working dogs training area but training activity has been deconflicted and all participants have permission to pass the yellow no entry signs.  The area within the working dog perimeter is predominantly flat and open bondu. 

Map: 1:10,000.  Maps will be pre marked with loose control descriptions.  Units with a large number of participants are requested to contact the under signed 48hrs prior to the event so that sufficient maps can be printed.

Equipment: Runners are to provide their own compass and whistle.  Full leg coverage is highly recommended.

Facilities: There are no toilets at Kurion Stadium.  The nearest ones are located at The Sanctuary of Apollo Hylates.  The nearest showers are located at Episkopi Garrison Gym, approximately 2kms away.  Water will be available at the registration area.
