Event descriptionWe start 3 times per 2 days: at the noon on Saturday and Sunday and at the midnight from Saturday to Sunday. All distances are not very long (30-40 min) We strongly believe that orienteering ought to be diverse. The first start will be held in the city. It will include areas of the city as well as forest or park areas, so the landscape will be various in the same distance.The second start will happen at night - it will make you to be more concentrated. The third start is going to happen in the forest in a typical Scandinavian terrain with open runnable pineforest and more difficult distances.
Terrain descriptionfirst start - city and park second start - night forest near the city with rocks and lots of trails third start - rocky forest (scandinavic terrain) with small number of trails for adult sportsmen
