World Trail Orienteering Championships (WTOC) are this year organised in Zagreb, Croatia. The events started yesterday, 23rd June with model courses for both PreO and Tempo in a large forest park in the centre of Zagreb. There were totally 12 controls at the PreO course, of which the first six were representative for what the competitors have to meet at Day 1 of the PreO and the six last represented the Day 2 course.

For TempO the competitors had the possibility to try two stations with four controls on each station.

In the evening the WTOC was opened by the mayor of Zagreb in the congress hall of Hotel Astoria. The organisers had to change the program and arrange the opening ceremony indoors due to a heavy rain starting just after the model event.

This year’s WTOC is the largest ever with more than 120 competitors from 27 countries. They were presented a various and nice opening program at the opening ceremony. On Wednesday, 24th, starts the competitions with Day 1 in PreO.
