Venue

On May 3 the competition centre is near the Pühajärve football field. Parking is in the parking spot next to Otepää-Kääriku road. If this parking field is full, the Pühajärve Spa parking field should be used.  In that case we ask the competitors to walk along the Otepää-Kääriku road back to the first parking field to avoid going into the competition terrain.

Maps and terrain descriptions

May 3 Pühajärve: Mapper Sven Oras. Height equivalence 2,5m. Previous map 2005044

Pühajärve consists of a city area with many private yards that are forbidden to cross and roads with low traffic and a park area with forest areas of good runnability between maintained open areas.

The terrain consists of mixed forest. The runnability of the forest varies from good in the coniferous areas to poor in the areas with deciduous trees. 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. There are many areas of cleared forest land and there are many fields. There are a few small roads and there are lots of different footpaths, cross-country ski trails and MTB tracks.

Control descriptions

For all classes excluding marked course and open courses there will be control descriptions in the start.

 

 

Open course

May 3 it is possible to participate in “Tartu orienteerumisneljapäevak” without pre-registration. Neljapäevak is open from 17.00 until 19.00.

 

May 4 and May 5, it is possible to participate in open course without pre-registration. Registration to open courses is in the competition centre information tent and starting is possible from start 1 during its opening hours. Start 1 is open on 03.05 from 17.00 until 18.09, on 04.05 from15.00 until 16.11 and on 05.05 from 11.00 until 12.12. Open courses have length of 3 and 5 km.  Open course costs 10 eur.

 

Start procedure

Individual start every day by previously randomly selected starting order. Prestart is 3 minutes. Each runner’s SI-card gets checked 3 minutes before the start by the organizers. 2 minutes before start competitors get control descriptions. Control descriptions are only for start 1 (not including open courses). Transparent duct tape and scissors are provided by organisers. Organisers don’t provide assistance with attaching control descriptions. 1 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 route 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.

 

Marked course for children. On the marked course, the competitors receive the map 1 minute before start. There is an instructor in the start, also the parents/accompanying persons can instruct the child. 5 minutes after the main start everyone can participate in the marked 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 the open marked course class (registration can be made in the information tent). 

 

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. Competitors, who rented 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 competitor’s name. All maps are gathered until the end of the starts.

Registration is closed. It is possible to take part in open courses or on the vacant spots.
