Orienteering forest

The forest is a gym for orienteering runners. We have teamed up with the Ivan Dejmal Foundation and we want to develop a project to increase the stability of forest stands. One of the basic problems of our forests is the occurrence of monocultural tree species, and because of this a number of places have been affected by bark beetle calamity. For each competitor registered for the Czech O-Tour 2023 series, we will plant one tree (usually edible, beech, larch or linden), which are necessary for more stable and natural forests in the long perspective. For the winner of each stage, we will plant. In the autumn months (October to November), each participant or winner can plant their seedling directly. This also applies to other participants and interested parties who want to contribute to the planting of the Orienteering forest. We will map the entire planting into a very detailed orienteering map, where for each seedling we will show the names of all donors, participants of the entire series or winners.


The first year of Czech O-Tour series returned to the terrains of WOC 2021. We negotiated throughout the autumn of 2021 with representatives of various institutions or nature conservation authorities in order to allow everyone to run in the same terrains like the best competitors in the world at the World Orienteering Championship 2021. As it was not possible to organize a large-scale event in July in the area of relays and the long distance in the Kokořín region, the organizing team tried to turn the negative news into a very unique event, which has no analogues worldwide: a slightly different year-round series in the best terrains of the WOC. The World Orienteering Championships 2021 were successfully held on July 3 – 9, 2021 in the Czech Republic in 4 locations: Terezín, Doksy, the Jizera Mountains and the Kokořín region. The center of the whole event was the town of Doksy. 307 competitors from 40 countries took part and it was the largest sport event in the Liberec Region in the year 2021. Results, photo galleries, maps and other information can be found on the WOC 2021 website.

Czech O-Tour 2022: 3 stages, 7 races (Terezín, Jizera Mountains, Kokořínsko), 7411 competitors in all races together.


The second year of the Czech O-Tour spread from the north of Czechia to the greater part of the Czech Republic. In the spring, the race took place in Pilsen, where the organizers held such a general test before the Junior World Orienteering Championship in 2024. During the autumn holidays, the competitors visited Kubova Huť in Šumava, where they could run in beautiful weather in unique mountain terrains. And we may have helped kick off a landmark in a somewhat forgotten region. But the beginning of August was the best – the Czech O-Tour was run together with the World Cup in Česká Lípa and the sandstone rocks of Kokořínsko! Throughout the year, we offered a rich accompanying program – an orienteering labyrinth, o-bazaar, shoe testing tree planting, a cinema or a fencing school.

Czech O-Tour 2023: 3 stages, 8 races (PzeňskoKokořínskoŠumava), 9114 competitors in all races together.
