Less than a year until the largest orienteering event in Germany, the WMOC 2012, begins. The most visible sign being the flag of the International Orienteering Foundation (IOF) which was handed over from this year’s host in Hungary to the next and has reached its final destination: the Harz Mountains around Bad Harzburg, where the Senior World Championships 2012 will be held.
Last Friday this year’s Senior World Championships in orienteering in Pécs/Hungary ended. To mark the end of this successful event the flag of the International Orienteering Federation (IOF) was handed over to next year’s organisers and is now on its way to Germany where the Senior World Championships will take place in the Harz Mountains around Bad Harzburg from July 1 – 8, 2012.
The preparations for the Senior World Championships 2012 entered their critical stage as the organising committee is present during this year’s WMOC in Pécs/Hungary. At their custom-made stand the committee and the regional tourism organisations involved provide information on details regarding the WMOC 2012 in Germany.
