Maps & Terrains

Sprint Distance – POSTECH(Pohang University of Science and Technology)

Scale: 1:4,000 / Contour Interval 2.5m

New map produced in 2020 in accordance to ISSprOM2019

The Sprint competition will be held at the university campus.Many university buildings, such as lecture hall, research center, and dormitories, are arranged. And auxiliary facilities such as sportsfacilities, landscape facilities, parking lots, ponds,and vegetation areas also exist.

School facilities are located on a gentlesoutheast slope (50m Altitude) and Vegetation areas have generally good visibility and runnability. But some are natural forests,so it’s hard to run a little.

There are severalroads and parkinglots in thecampus. There is not muchtraffic, but the competitors must be carefulof access to the vehicle.You should also be care about making the noise around the dormitory.


Middle Distance & Middle Relay– Heunghae

Scale: 1:10,000 / Contour Interval 5m

1:7,500 enlargedmaps for juniorand senior classes(in open classes) New map producedin 2020 in accordance to ISOM2017-2

The middle and middle relay venues, with the exception of some areas, consist of relatively gentle terrain with altitude 40 meters or less.

The narrow valleysand small forestpaths have been developed, requiringdetailed map reading. And there are many pine trees and bamboo. Visibility and runnability are generally good, but deviations varyby area. Generally, it is a gentle terrain,but there are some steep slopes,closed quarries, deepwaterways, etc., so care mustbe taken.

Old maps of the terrain will be uploaded to the AsOC&JYOC website.
