Information Boards and Guidance
The main information board is located close to the Information centre. Signpost is located in front of the information centre. Information boards with area maps are located in the event centre and at the club bus drop-off. There are maps and bulletin boards in the tent areas, showing the location of the tent pitches and the tent pitch codes of the clubs.
Instructions for the start in Venla and Jukola Relay
Make sure that you have enough time to sign in and do the Emit reset. The signing in will be in stages according to the team’s racing number. Read the competition instructions and follow the announcements. Check and finalise your equipment before arriving. Attach your number bib with four safety pins to the chest of your competition shirt and remember to write V / J, your team number, and your leg number on the emit backup patch. Take into account the weather conditions when dressing for warming up. There will be drinking water and toilets in the warm up area. Remember to take your compass, emit card, night light lamp, battery, battery vest, spare lamp and any additional energy supplies (gels etc.). In the forest, there are drinking points so usually there is no need for taking your own drink with you. Take care that your shoes are according to the rules. Spike shoes are forbidden.
Your number bib’s barcode will be read into the system in the entrance tent. After that, you will put your Emit card onto the Emit unit. Please keep your number bib in sight and your Emit card available to make the process run smoothly and quickly. The competitor must sign in no later than 20 minutes before the scheduled start.
In the Emit reset your Emit card will be cleared. If your Emit card doesn’t work, you will be guided back to the entrance tent, where you can hire a working Emit card. If you hire an Emit card, you can pay for it later at the information centre. The Emit card cannot be changed after Emit reset has been performed. Only a competitor with a number bib can access the start and change over areas. Competitors must not leave the start/ change over area after Emit reset.
Tip: Attach your backup patch on your Emit card with a small piece of tape.
The warm-up area is marked on the event centre map. There are toilets, a water point, monitors for following intermediate times and rubbish bins in the warm-up area. Put all rubbish (e.g. energy gel wrappers and drink bottles etc.) into the rubbish bins provided, and remember to sort your waste, thank you.
First leg runners can warm up in the marked area. First leg runners can leave their warm-up clothes onto the fence between the routes in and out of the exchange area. The fences surrounding the start area will be removed after the start, so do not leave any clothes or other materials on that fence.
In the start area follow the instructions given by the announcer. First leg runners with large numbers will be guided to move towards the back rows at the latest 30 minutes before the start. Teams with small numbers will be the last ones to move to the front rows. Make your way to your own start row in time and wait for additional instructions from the announcer. You can see the location of your starting row from the officials’ vests. The officials will stand at the end of each row.
Approximately 8 minutes before start the announcer will give the competitors permission to move to their own starting points. Go along the line parallel to your number bib in the start grid. Wait behind the line.
Distributing the maps starts when announced. There will be one person distributing the maps per each line (20 competitors). Make sure that you get the map that matches with your number bib. It is the competitor’s responsibility to check that he/she gets the right map. Keep the map visible in front of your body until the start. Do not open the seal on the folded map before the start signal is fired. According to the competition guidelines, the opening of the map seal before the start signal is fired, leads to the disqualification of the team. Do not move from your place before the start signal is fired by the Finnish Defence Forces. In accordance with the competition guidelines, the start will be recorded. Teams with registered false start will be disqualified. Do not rush to the starting point. The starting area gets narrower to an uphill = be careful that you do not run into another competitor!
If you are late, do not attempt to climb the fence around the starting area. You need to enter normally via the emit check-in.Otherwise the team will be disqualified. The start area will be closed 10 minutes before the start. Competitors who are late will get their maps from the HELPPI point for 30 minutes after the start.
Runners of the other legs may leave their warm-up clothes to the previous leg runner on the exchange fence or on the fence between the change over areas entrance and exit points.
Instructions for the changeover/finish in Venla and Jukola Relay
When you finish your leg, choose the correct finish lane (corresponding with your leg number). The correct lane will be shown to you by screens/ officials. You have to punch your Emit also at the finish line! After punching, give your map to the officials waiting.
Tip: Open your map wide before you hand it to the officials.
How to find the map for the next leg runner: The map stands are equipped with number signs at the end of each stand. The smallest numbers are placed nearest to the changeover fence.
When you have found the correct map, take it by lifting it straight up from the bag. Do not rip! When you have the map, go to the changeover fence. At the changeover fence runners with smallest numbers are located to the left end and the runners with the largest numbers to the right.
Tip: There are number signs at the changeover fence, indicating where your team runner should be waiting.
If for some reason there is no correct map in your team’s map bag or if you have accidentally taken a wrong map from a wrong bag, you must immediately contact the help point, “HELPPI”, at the right end of the changeover fence to get the right map.
