Terrain and maps
The terrain for the long distance will offer many route choice options. The terrain is moderately hilly to hilly, consisting of several ridges and valleys. 450–650m a.s.l. The forest consists of coniferous forest. Quite large sections of young forest and felled areas. There are grass fields, but grass does not hinder running. Runnability is very good to good – limited only on steep slopes and in young forest and dense areas. Developed network of forest roads and paths enables fast running.
The terrain for middle consists of stony slopes, 550–710 m a.s.l. – crowned by cliffs up to 10 m high! Plenty of boulders up to 5 m high. Uneven ground. The vegetation consists of old coniferous forest – with some areas of diffuse thickets. Runnability is generally good, but in places significantly limited by stony ground and fallen branches. Few paths and tracks.
The sprint is a typical city sprint in a mostly flat city – except for a 10-15 meter high steep slope around the old town. Partly urban area in the old city center and partly parks.
The relay is organized in a flat area with some gentle slopes. Mixed forest of variable runnability – some under-vegetation (grass). Developed network of forest roads and paths, partly rectangular. Major forest roads enable extremely fast running
