Also this year the organisation has the same concept and ambitions, although the races will take place on 3 new maps. The goal from ASOM is to introduce orienteering to non-orienteering people and convince them about the beauty of our sports. On the other they want to organise a high level sprint competition with international athletes and the best Belgians at the startline.

In class H21E we expect for sure the Belgian sprintspecialists Yannick Michiels and Tristan Bloemen on the startlist. Probably also some other national team members will show up. The international athletes for 2016 are: Tim Robertson (NZL), Jonas Gvildys (LTU), Andrea Seppi (ITA), Chris Smithard (GBR), Dane Blomquist (GBR), Rafal Podzinski (POL), Soren Riechers (GER), Marc Serrallonga (ESP),...
