From here to VR Timetables

Kauhava train station is located only 4km from the Competition Centre and we will arrange a shuttle bus service between Station – Competition Centre – Station (from the arriving trains listed below). The buses will leave from the Kauhava train station parking area about 10min after the train arrives and will make several rounds between the station and the Competition Centre if necessary. Buses will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Train connection from the port of Turku: Those arriving in the port of Turku on Saturday morning will not be able to catch the train to the start of the Venla relay at 14.00. We recommend arriving in Turku on Friday and taking the train to Tampere and spending the night there. There are several morning trains from Tampere to Kauhava on Saturday.
