Important Information:
There is an area of small pine trees that is mapped with the symbol 402.0 (Open Land with Scattered trees), even if not all trees have the same size. Being a young culture, the terrain still have a few irregularities;

There are several áreas of chestnut trees that are mapped with the symbol 413.0 (Orchard).

The M/W10 course has parts of the course flagged that is identified in the map and in the course description. The course M/W12 only has one leg flagged, even if the athletes may pass in areas of the course M/W10. Nevertheless, the course description clearly identifies the leg that M/W12 athletes must follow.

All courses (including formation classes) will cross the access road to Penela da Beira that, besides having low traffic, it may have sporadic movement. In the crossing zone of the formation classes, there will exist organization elements. The remaining ones must take the necessary precautions when crossing.
