The peak of the 2019 Trail Orienteering season is reached this weekend when the World Championships (WTOC) begin in Idanha-a-Nova in eastern central Portugal. 25 nations are set to compete at this year's World Trail Orienteering Championships.  The Open class has 89 competitors and the para class 43.

The Championships started with the Opening Ceremony on Sunday, and on Saturday and Sunday a pre-WTOC event, part of this year’s European Cup in TrailO (ECTO), was held not far away on similar terrain.

The GB team are all prepared for the first WTOC 2019 PreO event to be held today, very near to Idanha-a-nova, where the team are staying.
