CAMP MADRID SOUTH

Our Camp Area in Madrid. It is located around El Tiemblo and San Martin de Valdeiglesias. Besides the famous Almorox maps there are

many new maps being made in this area since 2016! (This year we are making about 10 new maps!) Another important reason is that it is situated about 200 meters lower than many of the other traditional map areas which means that we are below the snow risk altitude, and can welcome orienteers to Madrid already from January!!! In this área there will be organized an international competition

WRE 14th - 15th of February 2020 on 3 totally new maps!

A total of 30 trainings. We have included also the Peguerinos maps and the new map in El escorial, considering that the distance to these places is not too far. In El Escorial there is never risk for snow. Peguerinos is at high altitude, but statistically there are only about 10 days per year snow in the Peguerinos forests. You may absolutely be able to go there also in a “normal” January or February week. The mayority of these maps are unknown to foreign orienteers!

Hotel 3 Star. ”Toros de Guisando” en Tiemblo. Very fast access to the main road. Less than one (1) minute away. Distance to the Madrid International Airport Barajas: 101km. Very big rooms. 24 double rooms. Terrace in every room. Half board or Full board included. If you are away for the whole day pic nic will be provided. Internet in every room. Big free parking, right outside the hotel.

Football

With 4 teams in La Liga there is always a match every weekend. This year: Leganés, Getafe, Real Madrid and Atlético de Madrid. The matches are very seldom sold out (unless Barcelona or Real Madrid being the visiting team). The easiest is to decide a mach and then go to the stadium some 3 hours before the match in order to buy tickets.

Sport history
Martin Kronlund, Sweden, was the first introducer of orienteering in Spain. He lived here from 1962 until he passed away in 2007, 91 years old. The place in Spain that he loved the most, he always said, was the Peguerinos forests; “They remain me so much of Sweden”
His ashes are dispersed in the Peguerinos forests
