Event descriptionThe 2015 edition of the Fin5 Orienteering Week will take place in Lieto and Mynämäki – each city not more than 30 km from the city of Turku. First competition will be a sprint competition in Lieto and the remaining four competitions will be middle and long distance races in Mynämäki. Our goal is to offer you as a competitor the most demanding Orienteering Week of 2015!
Terrain descriptionThe sprint competition will be held in urban surroundings (juniors and elite classes) but also in recreation area (master classes) which offers good visibility and fast surface. Stages 2-5 will be held in terrain which mostly offers very detailed open rock areas with good runability. Small hills and brushwood marshes alternate. Differences in levels are quite small – biggest hills are ca. 30-40 m. In addition to open rock areas, competitors have a possibility to enjoy some pinewood areas with sandy bottom.
