Stage 3 to be moved to a new location

OriSpring organizers are sorry to inform the participants that due to the lack of permission by the Municipality of Frascati, stage 3 race needs to be moved to a different location. We are already looking for the most suitable area both outside and inside the city of Rome. We hope to inform you very soon about the final stage location.

Ready, steady, go! OriSpring 2017 first stage will take place in the green hearth of Rome, in the hystoric and monumental Villa Borghese. An afternoon race that will let you find controls running through the bust sculptures of Italian 19th century unification heroes and very close to the art treasures kept in Galleria Borghese museum.

Will you manage to perform flawlessly in a race that allows no distractions? The spectacular garden-district of Garbatella is one the most technical urban orienteering map in Italy and maybe in the world! Expect a middle distance race in the typical blocks ("lotti") of houses that makes this district a real village inside the city.

The third stage is being hosted by the medieval town named after pope Gregorio Magno, on the beautiful terrace of Brancaccio castle. OriSpring 2017 final standings will be completed with a sprint race featuring staircases in the "borgo vecchio" and steep slopes in the public park.
