The sprint competitions take place in Hørsholm north of Copenhagen and in central Copenhagen – the capitol of Denmark. The Long and Middle Distance competitions are held in North Sealand – with qualification race and Middle Final in Tisvilde Hegn and Long Final in Grib Skov.
The Event Centre will be in Farum Arena, which is centrally located in North Zealand. It is easily accessible by car or public transport.
Farum Arena offers O-camp and floor accommodation in class rooms. All information about the event will be given here. O-related workshops are planned to take place during the event week.
Farum Arena has hosted WTA Tennis tournaments and handball Champions’ League matches. The nearby Farum Park has hosted football Champions’ League. There will also be accommodation possibilities here.
Distances from the Event Center to:
• O-camp: 150 meters
• Sprint Model Event : 0 meters
• Classroom accommodation in school rooms: 50 meters
• Farum Bytorv shopping center: 500 meters
• Farum S-train station: 1.200 meters
• Furesøbad lake swimming site: 2.000 meters

Several competitions will be organised in similar terrain until WMOC 2018. In particular, we recommend Danish Spring 2017 and 2018.
Plenty of training possibilities are available in relevant terrain. Forest access is easy as most of the North Sealand forests are State Forests with unlimited access. Contact us using the contact e-mail for further information.
Restrictions for use of shoes will probably apply in Copenhagen. More info later.
The Sport Ident punching system will be used. SI-cards can be rented from the organisers by choosing this option in the entry form.
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.
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.
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 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.
