Event descriptionTallinn Orienteering Week is a traditional orienteering event that usually takes place in various terrains in northern Estonia. In 2020 TOW will be held as the public race of European Orienteering Championships with the competition centre in Rakvere. It will give a great opportunity to all orienteering friends to support their favourites and then compete on the same terrain. Competition centre is located in Rakvere - a small town in Northern Estonia. The sprint race of TOW will also be held in Rakvere. All forest distances including traditional 100CP Run will be held in the forests near Põlula and Miila. Tallinn Orienteering Week 2020 consists of 4 race days: two middle distances, a sprint and a long distance. The long distance race is a traditional 100CP Run, where M21A runners have to pass 100 control points.
Terrain descriptionOn forest distances, the terrain has many typical moraine features (eskers, kames, drumlins). Height difference on the terrain is around 30 metres and 20 metres on one slope. There are many hillocks and depressions with depths and heights up to 10 metres. Larger marshes and flat areas are situated around streams and rivers. Depending on the weather, the marshes can be wet. The vegetation is very varied, but most of the terrain is covered by forest. There are a lot of areas with self-sown undergrowth and high grass. Logging areas can be overgrown. Runnability varies from spruce forest with good runnability to overgrown logging areas, areas with storm-felled trees and a lot of areas with undergrowth, which all have poor runnability. Visibility varies from good to poor. A regular pattern of forest rides covers the terrain and there are some small roads and tracks. Sprint takes place in Rakvere. Ca 50% of the terrain is mapped for the first time. Half of the terrain is houses and streets typical to small town and the other half of the terrain is historical castle and castle's hill with newly built open air entertainment centre.
