Every three years we are organising the orienteering competition Thermenland-Open in the hilly surroundings of the Styrian spa region. The cross-boarder competition is organised in cooperation with a Hungarian and Croatian club. Several TLO competitions were already organised in our neighbouring countries. In the Fürstenfeld – area this Thermenland-Open will be the 5th already.
This year Thermenland-Open doesn’t only offer 2 Austrian Cup Races (one is even the Austrian Championship) but also the yearly organised Alpe-Adria-Cup. Additionally saturday and sunday Middle and Long Distance Races will be World Ranking Events (WREs)!
Altogether Thermenland-Open 2015 will run 4 big competitions:
1) Alpe Adria Relay on Friday with the competition centre in the Swimming Pool in Fürstenfeld (which will celebrate its 50-year-anniversary this year)
2) Austria Cup and World Ranking Event Middle Distance on Saturday in Bad Waltersdorf
3) City-O / Sprint in Fürstenfeld on Saturday evening organised together with the Brunnenlauf with Start and Finish on the main square in Fürstenfeld
4) Austrian Championships for Youth and Seniors on Sunday, WRE Long Distance in Bad Waltersdorf
We expect about 800 runners from more than 10 nations at our competitions. This will be more than 2500 starts at this weekend. We are happy to present our wonderful region to a big number of sportsmen and their families. Come and enjoy our races but also the wonderful Spa Area near Bad Waltersdorf and Fürstenfeld.
