WELCOME TO NEUCHÂTEL
EGK Swiss 5 Days Orienteering 2022
Wednesday 25 – Sunday 29 May 2022
Dear orienteering friends from all over the world,
Welcome to Neuchâtel! The Neuchâtel Association of Orienteering (ANCO) is celebrating its 50-year anniversary in 2020 and offers a package of 5 competitions that hopefully you will be enjoying: the EGK Swiss 5 Days Orienteering.
Surely, many of you were entered for the 2020, then for the 2021 event. For well-known reasons, we had to postpone these great races two times. But the organizing committee is back with enthusiasm to start afresh the preparations.
“There, where the lake and the mountains meet” [*], on the first crest of the Swiss Jura mountains, on the green slopes or in the city, running long, middle or even sprint courses, the variety of orienteering courses is guaranteed.
You may certainly have followed with great excitement the European Sprint Championships 2021 in Neuchâtel from the comfort of your home. In 2022, you will be able to also run exciting competitions and afterwards discover the riches of the Jura-Trois Lacs region.
With our vast experience as organisers and with your contribution, we will be offering a sustainable event in respect to our environment.
ANCO, the city and the canton of Neuchâtel are looking forward welcoming you to a week of athletic, touristic, cultural, and gastronomical highlights from which you will take home, we hope, only the best memories.
President of the organizing committee
