Suunto Games will be arranged, as usually, in June one week before the Jukola Relay, offering thus a good opportunity for preparing to the big event a week later.
Old masters still run fast to the finish
Suunto Games is a two-day competition with individual start mode, the adult categories having a middle distance race on Saturday and a long distance race on Sunday. Children will be running a long distance on both days.
Open orienteering is available on both days, too. The terrain and all controls are just the same used in Suunto Games. You can select among several different courses.
Foreign orienteers give an international atmosphere to Suunto Games
During the week after Suunto Games you have possibilities for training in several open orienteering events in the vicinity of Helsinki from Monday to Thursday evening in the vicinity (within 50 km) of Helsinki. Maybe you knew that at this time of the summer nights in Finland are bright for a long time.
