Registration for the 2024 Kainuu Orienteering Week is open
The 56th Kainuu Orienteering Week will be organized in Kajaani at Joutenlammi on June 30-July 5, 2024.
The competition center is located approximately 15 kilometers north of Kajaani
The magical terrains of Joutenlampi, combined with the accommodation possibilities of Kajaani and Vuokatti, is one of the best combinations for the event venue of Kainuu Orienteering Week. The last time Kainuu O Week was at Joutenlampi in 2012.
The Joutenlampi area is Finland's most extensive moor terrain on orienteering maps. The fast-moving moor terrain and its curvy lines of ridges and depressions are the dream of many orienteers. There are so many variations of altitudes that even the deepest depressions affect route choices.
The trail and paths in the nearby area and the ridges between the ponds offer safe terrain for children and beginners. The terrain gets more difficult the further you go from the Competition Centre. On the longest courses, the open moor terrain sometimes changes to denser seedlings and juniper bushes. When the Competition Center is almost in the middle of the area, there is enough new orienteering terrain for each stage.
Registration for orienteering week competition series and fitness orienteering (open series) is now open.
- Registration for the race series is as usual in the IRMA-service.
- Registration for open courses (recreational orienteering) is, as this year, via Navisport.
See the registration instructions on the entry page.
You can find more detailed information about the event in the competition invitation, which has now been published on the website.
Welcome to spend an exhilarating orienteering and vacation week for the whole family in the scenic surroundings of Joutenlampi in Kajaani!
