The demanding courses in good terrain, experienced organisation and 1000 - 1100 runners guarantee its popularity year after year. Helsinki O-Games is a two-day competition. The Saturday program is a middle distance race (preliminary) and on Sunday a long distance race (preliminary). In both days, all classes have an individual start. Open orienteering is available in both days, too. The terrain and the controls are the same as in Helsinki O-Games. You can select among several different courses.
