Event descriptionCome and prepare yourself for WOC2025 spectator race in Kuopio 7.-12.7.2025 and Jukola relay 2027! We'll offer traditional and high-quality orienteering week and holiday week in Kainuu. 57th Kainuu Orienteering Week offers great orienteering experiences in a legendary terrain of Vuokatinvaara. Challenging and diverse orienteering tasks for all orienteers - from amateurs to elite runners. Someone might remember this terrain as a official terrain for the WOC2013 Vuokatti (Finland) event.
Terrain descriptionAll races are moved into the fine hill terrain of Vuokatti where the highest altitude variation is about 120 meters. The hilltop areas of the hillside are often rocky and specific-featured, but the lower parts of the hills are with poorer features. The trees are mainly old spruce trees, uphill has also pine forest. Visibility in the old woods area is good but in the seedling areas more limited. Hills are partly soft based and twiggy. There are hardly any stones. Some trails on the terrain can also be found to facilitate orienteering.
