Please cheer for our club in the worlds largest orienteering relay. This year Jukola has attracted almost 20,000 runners among them a team from Luxembourg. After finishing on 1190th position in 2015, year we finished 599th last year and gained a starting position closer to the starting line, so needed given the arrangement of the start corridor this year. We plan to run in the following order:
599 Luxembourg Orienteering Club 1
1 Jevgenijs Sproge 2 Jonas Wolff 3 Ondřej Kotecký 4 David Roach 5 Jan Slíva 6 Olena Pitirimova 7 Oleksandr Rybakov

In addition, the public broadcaster YLE is sending live from the competition in Finnish https://areena.yle.fi/tv and Swedish https://arenan.yle.fi/tv. These are restricted to a Finnish IP-adress, so this is for the as well IT-savy as polyglot!
And few quotes about the terrain by the course setter:
There are very few marshes or ditches.
The area is woodland with barely any man-made paths. The paths will be created during the competition by the feet of the previous runners.
One should ignore small-scale deviations (in this case meaning stones and smaller boulders) and concentrate on larger and more obvious landforms.
