Silesia O-Cup is an unique opportunity to get to know the very interesting area of Upper Silesia. Most of you associate it with mines, steel works and ubiquitous coal. If you want to find out how Upper Silesia really looks like, come to our competition.

Stage I - Sucha Góra Stone Labyrinth

For starters, we invite you to Bytom. Here you will find an inconspicuous forest that hides inside a 19 th c. dolomite and limonite quarry. The main feature of this place is its relief, with ravines, hills, pits, valleys and ridges. There is even a sizeable lake in the middle. The forest has good and average runnability, with a few denser areas. Moderate network of roads.
This will be the short forest stage.
