Group description
The organisers of WOC 2011 have asked the IOF about permission to use map scale 1:10 000 for WOC long distanse 2011 in France. IOF answered "no".

By creating this group, we try to put pressure on the IOF. The detailed maps in the WOC area are difficult to read in competition speed, because of stony and uneven ground making the runnability quite bad.

Yesterday after the WC race in Annecy I started collecting signatures from runners and national team coaches voting for 1:10 000 (or 1:12 500).

So far, 62 runners from 15 nations have signed. I will continue collecting signatures during this week's official training camp in France and WC races in Switzerland, and give the list to an IOF representative in Geneva on Sunday.

If we also can tell the IOF that lots of runners have joined this group, we have done a good job!
