Event descriptionWorld Cup Final 2024 will be held in Kuopio, Finland. WOC2025 organization wishes all athletes participating in the Sprint World Orienteering Championships good luck in their upcoming challenges .
Terrain descriptionThe terrain is a varying mixture of Finnish forest. The total height difference is less than 100m, and there are no steep slopes or high cliffs. Signs of forest industry can be found throughout the area, causing big, rapid changes in runnability and visibility. Pine trees dominate the landscape. Vegetation in the lower parts of the terrain is usually dense in late summer and fall. The terrain includes both detailed areas and places where there are just a few features to navigate with, equally challenging.
