Event descriptionSuunto Games is one of the most remarkable early summer orienteering event in Finland. It is 9th-10th June. The demanding courses in good terrain, experienced event organisation and 1200 - 1300 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 2012. 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. All categories are available, even string courses for the younger orienteers. Courses are middle distance on Saturday and long distance on Sunday. Map in Sunday for E, 21A 20A,18A 16A and 15A categories is 1:15 000. Map will be printed in spring 2012 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.
Terrain description Terrain type is familiar for Suunto Games: demanding small features and some old forests, too. Very suitable for JUKOLA trainings.
Training possibilitiesSeveral good orienteering areas with good maps available in the surroundings of Helsinki, max 30 kms from the city centre.
