TOW training - extended sprint

Prindi

August 12, Botanic Garden

Botaanikaaed

Tallinn Botanic Garden

Start at a freely chosen time between 10.00-13.00

Terrain and map

The terrain consists of three parts: 1) The Tallinn Botanic Garden - low-cut grass, a lot of roads, sparse plant growth with a few hedges, ponds, a number of forbidden areas and some slopes up to 10m. 2) The Iru Bog – mostly dry peat bog with irregularly located half-meter-deep peat quarries. Plants significantly restrict visibility but not runnability. The area is surrounded by a gravel road, but inside there are no significant objects. 3) A hayfield located between the two areas mentioned above with a few boggy and dense areas of forest.
