Welcome to Stockholm Indoor Cup, the world’s biggest indoor orienteering event! Stockholm Indoor Cup (SIC) is the competition for you who want a unique orienteering experience- it is all indoors! Racing through the stairs and along the corridors of a building, just to find yourself stuck and do it all over again… Think of it as a 3D maze as much as ordinary orienteering! And remember, the world’s best forest orienteer may not be the one winning SIC…
We are pleased to welcome orienteers from the whole world to Stockholm to the 2019 edition of SIC! The competitions will be held 2nd-3rd February 2019, with one stage on Saturday and one stage on Sunday. Guaranteed snow-free in the middle of the winter! Combine with our long run on Saturday 2nd if you want some more training, which is open to everyone regardless of running speed.
The venues for 2019 are now set:
Saturday 2nd February: Anna Whitlocks Gymnasium (upper secondary school), Kungsholmen. Perhaps the most centrally located SIC venue ever, the venue can be reached by walking from Stockholm Central station. The school offers some really interesting indoor-O fun in a building that has just been converted from offices to a school environment. Expect to be exhausted after navigating your way through the eight (!) floors and some staircases… Combine with our long run, which will take place in central Stockholm and take you past some of the most famous landmarks of Stockholm (as well as of course providing some nice winter-O!).
Sunday 3rd February: Huddinge Gymnasium, Huddinge. Easily reached by public transport by commuter train and a connecting bus (or a walk) within 25 minutes from Stockholm Central Station. This stage will offer a completely different terrain, as the building is flat but vast. The adjacent Huddingehallen Sports Centre will offer a great arena as well as possibilities for swimming after the race!
We can help you sort out some practical details if you like! We will publish all information in English, however it may be a bit delayed compared to the Swedish information. If you need any information from us to be able to plan your trip, please don’t hesitate to send us an e-mail on firstname.lastname@example.org
Information about the competition will be published here and through our Facebook page as we know more.
