15th of March Supersprint at Grand Bazaar
Grand bazaar area offers short and very fast orienteering within the net of small streets, which are like in a complicated labyrinth crossing each other by different angles.
Technically it reminds ski-o: High speed, high concentration.
The most difficult part is a “multilevel” orienteering, which requires climbing stairs.
Scale 1/1.500, contours none, map size А4.
