Saturday, 3rd August 

100KP Run

Sunday, 4th August

Middle distance, WRE 

Time and place

Venemäe

Saturday - 13.00 

Sunday - 11.00

Start time for open courses and taped route on Saturday is from 13.00 until 14.30 and for Sunday is from 11.00 until 12.30.

Terrain and map

Typical terrain of eskers in Kõrvemaa - hills covered with microrelief surrounded by bogs and lakes. Runnability varies from very good in the pine and spruce forest to bad in spruce thickets. The eskers are mostly moderately and strongly detailed with a maximum slope of over 20m.. There are different areas of young forest with different runnability. In some parts of the terrain, there are more trails and paths than on average. Many of smaller trails and paths are disappearing. As a legacy from military use, there are a lot of trenches and trench lines with various sizes. Typical pine forest in Kõrvemaa with added spruces and deciduous trees that make visibility worse and orienteering more exciting. 

Scale in 1:10 000, h = 5m, taped courses 1:5000, h = 5 m.

100CP run will be held on one map, it means that there is no relief map as known from previous years.
