Hi Boris - I'm not speaking in an official capacity, but to the best of my knowledge there will *not* be a beginner course. I believe the shortest/easiest course will be the 5k "Zygoat" which, because the terrain is very open with excellent visibility (and because it's a mass start), I wouldn't think will be beyond the ability of someone with the basic knowledge of how to orienteer - but I would not recommend it for a true beginner.
