You can now order maps for Bubo camp!

All the sessions are planned and you can see their basic info in the Training sessions section.

Most of the courses are divided into A and B. Sometimes only one course is available (Loops, sprint..)

If we get entries for the C course (MW12 level) we will add those courses as well.

You can now order maps at OrienteeringOnline.

Bubo camp – something a bit different

Due to OOcup being held far up north it would be too much for our small team to organize another full event in July in Slovenia/Croatia. Instead of that we will for the first time organize a training camp named Bubo camp!

In the last days of July we will give you an opportunity to run some fun training sessions on Cres island. Familiar terrain of Tramuntana forest and Cres olive groves will be used together with a new map – Rosuja – also in Tramuntana forest. We will also try to use sprint map of Cres town. All in all we have enough mapped terrain to provide an exciting training week which you can combine with some bathing in crystal clear Adriatic sea.

If the concept proves interesting, Bubo cup might become permanently replaced by Bubo camp. We will see what future brings. For now you are most welcome to check our website and join the camp!

Beli beach – walking distance from the majority of training sessions

Thanks

Big thanks to everyone who came to Bubo cup 2021. We hope you enjoyed the terrains of Pohorje plateau. Our small team certainly did enjoy serving you with some nice orienteering. Not so much dealing with the broken road :).

The next thing to do is OOcup, we will meet many of you there again.

The fate of Bubo cup is not clear at this moment. We will decide in autumn. Stay tuned for more information.

Latest info on road Rogla – Klopni vrh

We spoke with the company responsible for the road from Rogla to Klopni vrh and we were allowed to use the road on own responsibility. The road is OK to drive with 2 places where some extra care is needed. One organizer will be there at the barrier at Koča na Pesku (mountain hut on the way, 2km from Rogla) for more information.

If you still want to use detour (from Rogla: 66km, 1h35min): link.

Bubo cup is on

The first stage is finished. You can see the results at OrienteeringOnline.

We were informed that the road Lovrenc na Pohorju – Rogla is severely damaged and therefore closed. So, make sure to avoid it! See you tomorrow.

IMPORTANT: Bulletin and Covid update

Here you can find the Bulletin with course data and basic information about the event.

Unfortunately, Slovenian government has recently made some changes to Covid rules for sport events. The PCR or quick test are now valid only 48 hours (72 hours before the change). Furthermore, only children younger than 15 years who are accompanied by their parents or guardians do not need negative test or proof of vaccination/recovery (before the change the age limit was 18).

Once again we kindly ask you to send us your certificates of vaccination or recovery from Covid as soon as possible. That way you will make things much easier for us. A lot of additional administration is now imposed on the organizers and we will greatly appreciate if you can send us your certificates before your arrival.

During the races we will use the system with Covid-tickets which will have to be presented at the start by all runners. Vaccinated and recovered will get all 4 tickets upon registration. All others who will bring negative tests will only get tickets for the time/stages their test is valid. When they retake the test, they will get the rest of their Covid-tickets.

If you have any further questions don’t hesitate to ask.

IMPORTANT: Paying fees and Covid update

We are now asking all participants of Bubo cup 2021 to pay for their entry fees. Please do so within 3 days of your entry deadline, otherwise next deadline entry fee will apply. It means all who entered the race before July 1st should pay for their entry fee until July 4th at latest.

Currently, the “Tested, Vaccinated, Recovered” rule is still on in Slovenia for sport events. We are not sure whether it will change until the race. If not, it means that, if you’re not Covid recovered or vaccinated, you will have to present PCR or quick Antigen test to start the race. Furthermore, since it is valid for only 72 hours, the test will have to be retaken during the race. It is possible to do so in health care centres close to the race venue.

In order to start the race, all participants older than 18 years will have to present:

  1. Negative PCR or Quick antigen test not older than 72 hours.
  2. Proof that person is Covid-19 recovered which means positive PCR test older than 10 days but not older than 6 months, or doctor’s certificate about Covid-19 recovery not older than 6 months.
  3. Proof of vaccination. Certificate which proves that:
  • it has passed at least 7 days since vaccination with second dose of Comirnaty vaccine (Biontech/Pfizer)
  • it has passed at least 14 days since vaccination with second dose of Covid-19 Vaccine (Moderna)
  • it has passed at least 21 days since vaccination with the first dose of Vaxzevria vaccine (AstraZeneca)
  • it has passed at least 14 days since vaccination with second dose of Covid-19 Vaccine (Johnson(Jansen Cilag)
  • it has passed at least 21 days since vaccination with the first dose of Covishield vaccine (India/Astra Zeneca)
  • it has passed at least 14 days since vaccination with second dose of Sputnik vaccine (GNCEM Rusia)
  • it has passed at least 14 days since vaccination with the second dose of CoronaVac vaccine (Sinovac Biotech)
  • it has passed at least 14 days since vaccination with the second dose of Covid-19 Vaccine (Sinopharm)

If you are vaccinated or recovered we kindly ask you to send us the proof of this as soon as possible to our email address orienteeringonline.cup@gmail.com.

Entries are now open

You can now enter Bubo cup 2021 at OrienteeringOnline.net. However, due to uncertain situation regarding Covid-19, we are not accepting payments at the moment. Please pay your entry fees only after we ask you to do so.

Bubo cup 2021 in Pohorje mountains

The decision is finally taken, the 2021 edition of Bubo cup will be held in terrain around Rogla ski resort in Pohorje mountains.

These are compeletly new areas for us, 100% stone free but still very beautiful and interesting, just in a different way than karst. The dates are 21.-24. July, which means it can be conveniently combined with the OOcup.

This means that “Platak project” in Croatia is shifted for one more year, so we plan to do it in 2022.
