Jukola 2011: All you need to know!

jukola2011

21:55 CET on Saturday more than 1500 men head into the forest – nearly 9 hours earlier at 14:10 CET nearly 1100 women start their relay. The Jukola relay is the highlight of the season for many runners – here you find all the information you need about the  Jukola and Venla relays.

Map and terrain

The competition terrain consists of several wide hills (from 30 to 40 meters). Most of the terrain has a lot of small details, and in some parts there are young pine forests with limited visibility. Fields, forest roads and paths offer different route choices. Above the map from Jukola 1992 is shown. This map overlaps most of the Jukola 2011 embargoed area, except for some areas to the south.

The 1992 Jukola map with course can be  found from omaps.worldofo.com:

Jukola 2011 is organized close to Hamina, not far from the Russian border. Below you see the embargoed area for Jukola 2011.
