The forest has many small hills, which have steep slopes. Some of the hills are up to 70 metres high. The total height difference between the highest point on the map and the lowest point on the map is 90 metres. Between the hills there are marshes of varying size.

Start procedure

Individual start every day by previously randomly selected starting order. Three-minute prestart. Each runner’s SI-card gets checked checked three minutes before the start by the organizers. Two minutes before start competitors get control descriptions. Control descriptions are only for start 1 and 2. Transparent duct tape and scissors are provided by organisers. Organisers don’t provide assistance with attaching control descriptions. One minute before the start, competitors go to stand next to their class’ map-bucket. After start signal, the competitors may take their map and start their race. A marked trail goes from start to starting triangle. Passing the starting triangle is compulsory. Warm-up clothing left to starts are brought back to the event centre by the organizers

 

String course for children. On the string course, the competitors recieve the map one minute before start. There is an instructor in the start and also the parents/ accompaning persons are allowed are allowed to instruct the child. 5 minutes after the main start everyone is allowed to participate in the string course without stating order. Example: The last child with selected order starts 11.12. Start is open for everyone at 11.17-11.32. We ask everyone who wants to accompany their child to register in this class. 

 

For the open course the registration is at the information tent and the course begins at start 2 during it's opening hours.

 

Finish procedure

Time will be registered by punching the control on the finish line. Competitors who had to mechanically punch the controls, need to show these markings on their map to the organizers. People, who rented their SI-cards from the organizers, need to return these on the last day right after their results are read from the card at the finish line. Each competitor gets a paper with their SI-card results after leaving the finish area. Competitors who have quit their race, need to pass the finish line. If that is not possible, information desk in the event centre needs to be notified with the competiors name. All maps are gathered until the end of the starts.
