CAMP MADRID SOUTH
This year we are launching one more Camp Area in Madrid. It is located around San Martin de Valdeiglesias. Besides the famous Almorox maps there are many new maps being made in this area since 2016! 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 9th - 10th of January on 3 totally new maps!
total of 25 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 week. The mayority of these maps are unknown to foreign

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.
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
