Event descriptionSuunto Games is one of the most remarkable early summer orienteering event in Finland. This year it is organised on 8th-9th June. The demanding courses in good terrain, experienced 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 will continue this year, too.
