Taking into account the safety of both competitors and visitors of Vilnius Old Town, the organisers decided not to include in the overall rankings of “Vilnius 2013” the results of the first day in MTB-O classes.

MAP AND TERRAIN
Day 1. Map – Vilnius old town (mapped and printed in 2013).
Competition center will be in Vilnius town.
Vilnius old town - the oldest and largest Lithuanian old town. Numerous narrow historic streets create an irregular network, which makes orienteering in old town distinctly difficult. Many of the old town courtyards are private, but there are also many yards with open gates. There are several squares and small parks. The height difference between the highest and lowest places is 48 meters.
Map area is about 1,5 km2
Scale 1: 5000, contour interval of 2,5 m.
Map drawn in 2013.
Day 2. Map – Rūdninkai (mapped and printed in 2012-2013).
Competition center will be in Šalčininkai district, about 32 km from Vilnius centre.
Map area is very unique - Rūdininkai proving ground and all forests around.
Landforms: up to 15 m high continental dunes and plains, in places with lots of different sized bomb pits. The former proving ground area occupying about 70% of the map area is semi-open, with solitary trees, mostly young pine, and thick heather, which significantly complicates the run. Path network is rare, many roads are sandy, which also complicates the run.
Map area is about 8km2
Scale 1: 10 000, contour interval of 2,5 m.
Map drawn in 2012-2013 m.
Day 3. Map - Koplyčianka (mapped and printed in 2013).
Competition center will be in Šalčininkai district, about 15 km from Vilnius centre.
Map area of good to moderate running forest. Hilly terrain dominated by ravines and slopes up to 70 m. Moderate path network.
