Totally overcrowded

Lists of entries and the "waiting list" of participants over the limit we'll try to publish during next week. We're sorry for not responding to your emails, but if you got an automatic answer your email was received. Since we closed entries we received hundreds new emails with additional entries. So the chance to participate in the competition is really very small. Here are some reasons for the limit of competitors:

Limit of 1000 participants set by National park Bohemian Paradise is binding for us. We can't exceed it because we really want to preserve good cooperation with National park management also in the future.

Two stages in one day is another reason. It's not possible to manage regular starting procedure for more than 1200 runners twice a day. And we really want to keep this tradition because our motto is: "You don't need to be off work to fully enjoy holiday competion."

Small competition areas. We received permission to organise the event in really unique and highly protected areas of Bohemian Paradadise. The competition area is beautiful, challenging, rugged but also pretty small. It's not possible to set there plenty of different courses and corridors to separate runners. And we really don't want to make the forest overcrowded. We want you to fully enjoy orienteering in sandstones.

So we are sorry and we hope you'll understand us.

In return we kindly invite you to Bohemian Paradise for Nice Holidays 2013. Now we just started new negotiations and we'll offer you another great sandstone orienteering experience! Just after 2012 competition we'll fluently update our webpage with new information.

We only recommend to send your entry soon, because we expect some participants limit again as usual.
