Event descriptionHOG is one of the most remarkable early summer orienteering event in Finland. The demanding courses in good terrain, experienced organisation and about 1000 runners guarantee its popularity year after year. HOG is a two day competition. Saturday program is a middle distance race and on Sunday a long distance race. Open orienteering is available in both days, too. The terrain and the controls are the same as in HOG. You can select among several different courses.
Terrain descriptionPhysically average Southern Finland, technically slightly more difficult than average. Moderate hilly, good runability but the lack of paths and trails means more challenging orienteering than normal. Examples:
Training possibilitiesDuring the week before and after HOG you have a possibility for training in open orienteering events. You will find them every evening in the surroundings of Helsinki. Maybe you knew that at this time of the summer evenings in Finland are bright very late.
Holiday activities,nature,hiking etc.Helsinki is the capital of Finland and offers numerous opportunites for holiday. Near the event centre there is Nuuksio National Park, with some great hiking trails.
