In 2018 you will find great opportunities for participating in high quality events in relevant terrain. We have selected two events, that we recommend for you to consider.
Danish Spring is the successor of the well-known Spring Cup and will be organized 23rd to 25th March 2018 with three WRE events. Sprint in Sorø in central Zealand and Middle and Long distance in Hvalsø forest – the EOC 2004 qualification terrain located approx. 20 km southwest of Roskilde.
Apart from being relevant for the WMOC final, it is also a challenging and enjoyable terrain.
The entry is open, and you will find more information at the event website (see below.) The organizers also recommend accommodation at various price levels
Only four weeks prior to WMOC, FIF Hillerød Orienteering caters for high quality events.
On Saturday 9th June, it will be possible to participate in the Zealand relay championships. If you cannot collect a team of three participants (two in the oldest classes), you can register at the individual classes.
On Sunday 10th June, the Zealand Long distance championships will be organized. Both events will take place in the forest Store Dyrehave just southeast of Hillerød.
If you move fast you can even secure accommodation in Hillerød Youth Hostel at walking distance from the arena of the forest events.

Environment and sustainability are of great concern to Copenhagen politicians, as you will learn more about in chapter 9. WMOC 2018 will implement our own sustainability strategy in the event, focusing on waste handling and food and beverage.
Food and drink will be served and offered in the arenas based on locally and regionally produced products. As far as possible, the products will be certified as organic.
We plan on no visible waste in the arenas: It should be easy for both participants and spectators to see where and how to deposit waste. The standard must be very high for both sorting of waste, and for regular cleaning of the surroundings. To the benefit of both humans and nature.
We plan to organise Kindergarden in the arenas to the extend required.
Medical services will be available in the arenas. Danish emergency telephone number is 112. Emergency calls for police is 114.
