Event descriptionSuunto Games is one of the most remarkable early summer orienteering event in Finland. It is 12th-13th June. The demanding courses in good terrain, experienced event organisation and 1400 - 1500 runners guarantee its popularity year after year. Suunto Games has presented to spectators in addition to their own competition exciting experiences with top orienteering (Finnish Top League in 2002 , 2005 and Nordic Meeting in 2003). We believe that exciting moments continue even in 2010. Competition centre is a new place and all services very near as usually. It is reached by car less than 40 minutes north-west from the centre of Helsinki. Nearest camping sites are in OITTAA (some 20-30 km from the competition center) and RASTILA (east from Helsinki) Competitions last two days. In both days all categories have an individual start All categories are available, Most A-categories have an alternative shorter course. String courses for the young will be available, too. Note: Categories H/D21 Elite has been requested from the Finnish Orienteering Federation Courses are middle distance om Saturday and long distance on Sunday. Terrain type is familiar for Suunto Games: demanding small features etc. Map will be printed in spring 2010 Open orienteering is available in both days. You can select among several different courses. Cafe, washing facilities, child-care and first aid services are available as usual.
