It will take you to maps somewhere near Zagreb. It is one of the oldest and the biggest orienteering competition in Croatia. It is one of rare competitions trying to keep a "classic" style.
Ackov Kup is a simple, modest competition, where you will find technically demanding courses and feel the friendly atmosphere.
TRADITIONAL NIGHT ORIENTEERING PARTY
Coming out of the dark side, each year, exactly on October 31st, the spirits of Halloween engage in orienteering business bringing the atmosphere of night running to another dimension. If you originate from town of Jastrebarsko, you have a good chance to win the race. Otherwise you will have to be just brave enough to face some witchcraft, and meet various creatures of night eye-to-eye. The results just might be explained to you later, but entering a race you accept the fact that higher forces exist.

During a year "Vihor" organizes a series of childrens' orienteering events, which are adjusted for children getting introduced into sport of orienteering. Those races are a part of traditional orienteering events or stand-alone events.
