Sylvester 5days: tomorrow first entry deadline

So far there has been much interest for the Sylvester 5-days in the north of Belgium. By 29th november 115 foreign participants have registered for this event. Traditionally more than 300 Belgian participants show up every day. This figure gives an indication that the end of december will once again be a real festival.  

The registrations are encouraging for the ongoing work from the organisation. They now have the confirmation that their concept in Flanders is attracting many orienteers. Probably many people will take the opportunity to combine the orienteering with a holiday in the north of Belgium (with some interesting cities like Brugge, Brussel and Antwerpen). But ofcourse also the orienteering will be demanding and interesting, specially during stage 1 (Brouwhuisseheide - WRE), stage 2 (Witte Bergen) and stage 3 (Weyervlakte).

In class D21E Claire Ward (GBR) was victorious in 2013. This year she'll be present again and she's ready to fight for the victory with the best Belgian women (like Miek Fabre, Liesbeth van de Velde and Greet Oeyen).
In men's class we're still waiting for the entries from the strongest foreign athletes. But with Alexander Lubina (GER), Olle Karner (EST) and Taneli Pantsar (FIN) there will be for sure some challenge for the Belgian athletes.

The first entry deadline is in 2 days (the 1st of december) and late entries are possible untill the 16th of december. The orienteeringonline website is the place to be for the registration.
