Terrain: The northern part of the Abaliget-Szuadó map with an elevation of 150-375 m above sea level. Typical karstic terrain with depressions. The slope above the lake of Abaliget is relatively steep, but has flat areas with large karstic depressions. The relief of the terrain is varied with a lot of depressions, pits and dolinas. In some areas the vegetation is relatively young and dense, but the runnability and visibility is good in the larger part of the terrain and the road network is dense. Due to caving activities there are new entrances to the underground cave system in the terrain. These are marked with a black ‘v’ (stony pit) on the map and are also marked on the terrain. Due to danger of injury it is forbidden and dangerous to enter the marked areas!
Some control points may be very close to each other. According to the Hungarian competition rule 16.10 control point should be at least 30 metres from each other. Due to the difficulty we placed control points on a similar object a bit farther from each other, but pay extra attention to the control codes!
