Detailed contours with demanding map reading. Friday: Technical orienteering with many controls and direction changes in, at times, terrain with many details and with excellent runnability. Hilly parts with open pine forest. Saturday: At times hilly and demanding. Quite a few paths, but also areas of dense vegetation and in places poorer runnability due to rocky ground.
