Date Saturday 26th May 2018, the Event Arena opens at 2.30 pm
Venue Hillerød Town Centre
Location Parking at the junction of Holmegårdsvej and Rendelæggerbakken, 3400 Hillerød
GPS: 55.943709, 12.310052

From here, follow the marked route to the Event Arena.
Please note: Competitors must use the above-mentioned parking area to avoid passing through the competition area. Arrival by car must take place either from the northeast by Fredensborgvej or from South / southeast by Københavnsvej-Holmegårdsvej.

The train station, Slotspavillonen is situated next to the parking area.


Parking -> Event Arena max. 2.000m (follow signs and blue/white tape)
Event Arena -> Start 1: Up to 2.300m
Event Arena -> Start 2: Up to 2.300m
Event Arena -> Start 3: Up to 1.500m

  • Follow signs and green tape to the starts
  • The finish and the Event Centre are at the Event Arena
  • NOTE: The quarantine area is at Start 1. For the elite runners, you can turn off on the way from the parking to the venue and go straight to start 1, thereby reducing the total distance.
  • Other courses can, in principle, do the same for start 2 and 3, but we encourage you to come to the competition first. Partly, to experience the elite competition, and partly to avoid a large amount of clothing transport.
Quarantine NOTE! Runners in classes M20, W20, M21 and W21 must be in the quarantine area before 15.30.

The quarantine area is situated close to Start 1.

Personal belongings and clothes will be transported to the finish area.

We follow the IOF’s rules for quarantine zones: If a runner arrives at the quarantine area later than 15.30, start can be refused. The decision will be made by the IOF Event Adviser. Telecommunication equipment (e.g. mobile phones) are not allowed in the quarantine area.

Terrain Urban area with grass areas, parking areas and parks.

The area is fairly flat with only small height variations.

Map Hillerød City, Scale 1:4.000, 2.5m contour interval.

The map is from 2018, drawn according to ISSOM 2007, and has received the quality stamp of DOF. Meridians are omitted from the map to enhance the readability.

Special symbols: 

Furthermore, the following symbols should be noted:

Maps will be offset printed.

There is no warm-up map.

Mandatory road crossings, areas out of bounds (rules) Hillerød is an active town and on major/minor roads and walking paths you will encounter motorized traffic, bikes and pedestrians – take great care and keep an eye on the traffic.

It is the responsibility of the runner to respect the Danish traffic rules!

Areas that are out of bounds are marked on the map in accordance with the IOF sprint norm with olive green colour. Additional out of bounds areas are marked with purple colour. These include the following which are shown by example on the underneath mentioned map:

  • Roads that you may not cross are marked with shading on the map.
  • Restauration and building areas are out of bounds and marked with shading.
  • Entrances or passages, which are out of bounds are marked with a crossing line.
  • Mandatory crossings are marked on both map and control descriptions and must be used.

In areas where we have judged, that the runner could be in doubt, we have marked the areas in the terrain with red/white tapes.

Some courses have a mandatory crossing, which is placed straight after a control. Instructions from on-site officials SHALL be followed.

Shoes with spikes are not allowed.

Control descriptions Loose control descriptions will be provided at the starts for those with an appropriate holder. Control descriptions are also printed on the front of the map. See the length of the loose control descriptions in the class list below.
Classes Course lengths are in accordance with § of the Rules and Regulations of DOF 2017. The length is measured as the fastest route choice.

W21 and M21 are WRE classes.

The Danish Orienteering Federation will seed the start lists of the classes W20, M20, W21, and M21.
