More than a decade ago in National park of Kopaonik a small 3-day international orienteering
event was organized. It was simply called “Kopaonik open". After humble beginning
with approximately 150 competitors and with only one tent in finish area it slowly started
growing... “Kopaonik open” became a brand, known for its challenging terrains, perfect maps,
and good organization in all aspects. Already in 2004 Balkan Championship has been organized
on Kopaonik and in 2009 EYOC (European Youth Orienteering Championship), both in
arrangement of the same organizing team, SD Jasenica from Smederevska Palanka, always
with help and support of many orienteering and club friends. In parallel the tradition of “Kopaonik
open” has been constantly kept. Three days wasn't enough so in 2010 it became first 5-days
6-stages international orienteering event in Serbia ever. Today “Kopaonik open” is worldwide
known orienteering competition in possession of near to 30km2 orienteering maps.
