SUUNTO GAMES
7th-8th June, 2008

Suunto Games is one of the most remarkable early summer orienteering event in Finland. It is one week before Jukola Relay. The demanding courses in good terrain , experienced event organisation and 1400 - 1500 runners guarantee its popularity year after year.

Suunto Games has presented to spectators in addition to their own competition exciting experiences with top orienteering (Finnish Top League in 2002 , 2005 and Nordic Meeting in 2003). We believe that exciting moments continue even in 2008.

Competition centre is totally in a new place and all services very near as usually. Iy is reached by car lesser than 30 minutes north-west from the centre of Helsinki. Public transport bus stop is about two kilometeters from the competition centre.

Competitions last two days. In both days all categories have an individual start

All categories are available, even Elite-categories. Most A-categories have an alternative shorter course. String courses for the young will be available, too.

Courses are on Saturday short distances and on Sundays long (classical) distances

Terrain type is familiar for Suunto Games: demanding small features. Main part of the competition area is nature reservation area used never or more than 15 years ago for orienteering competitions.

Map will be printed in spring 2008

Open orienteering is available in both days. You can select among several different courses.

Cafe, washing facilities, children-care and first aid services are available as usual.
