ASA:n suunnistusosaston edustaja Erling osallistuu luonnollisesti yhteen suunnistusvuoden kohokohdista, Jukolan viestiin. Alla hänen pikaiset mietteet Jukolasta.
Jukola relay 2013 is organized in Jämsä, in the woods of Central Finland. Runners from around the world and in all levels are meeting for the biggest orienteering event of the season. The womens relay, Venla, started at 14.00 with teams of 4 runners. The mens relay, Jukola, starts in the light summer night at 23.00 with teams of 7 runners.
It’s a unique atmosphere, changing from area to area, yet silent in the camping area laid out in the surrounding open pine forest.
The arena hosts a sports fair with a big tent representing products, shops and food tents. The first runners at the moment are out racing in the forest, the expectations are rising and runners are continuously warming up, jogging – who will be the strongest and most clever orienteering team this year?
