Description and location of trainings

8. Virvik

In Virvik there are two middle distance trainings. Middle 1: 4,7 km and Middle 2: 5,5 km, and a map with all controls.

A coherent forest area with a lot of bare rock and small elevation differences.
The forest floor changes from good to very good. On top of the hills the running speed can be very high, but in the slopes and between the hills are rockier and the running speed slows down a bit.
There are no logging areas on the map.

Virvik middle 1

Virvik middle 2


9. Norike

In Norike there is a long distance training 8 km, and a map with all controls.

The Norike terrain is on the north side of Virvik, but a much more varied terrain. The ground is slower than Virvik and the northern part is mostly cut forest with stony ground. The bare rock areas are technical and fast, especially in the western parts.


10. Karhukorpi

In Karhunkorpi there is a corridor and contour training 10,2 km.


The terrain has already been used a few years and therefore this kind of technical training. There are many slow areas which are mostly avoided. On the contrary to these there are technical hills,
some with lower visibility.


11. Holken

In Holken there is a relay training 5,1 – 5,2 km, with forking a,b,c.

The neighbouring terrain to the competition area describes well the Jukola terrain. There are fast bare rock hills, rocky slopes and demanding greener areas. The ground changes from slow to very fast, so you need to focus on finding the right orienteering rhythm.

13. Karhunkorpi

Relay training, with forkings 1,2,3. And a map with all controls for training 10 and 13 on the same map.

Very similar to the Jukola competition terrain. Fast but tricky bare rock hills, rocky slopes and difficult green areas. Runability changes from slow to very fast, so it’s important to focus on the right orienteering rhythm.

12. Model event Epoo

All controls map. Maps available at the competition info from Friday (16.6) 10.00 to Sunday (18.6) 15.00.
