The Junior World Championships 2017 start with Middle Qual on Monday July 10th, continues with Middle Final on Tuesday, Sprint Wednesday, Long Friday and Relay Sunday.
The championship is organized around Tampere, Finland – and will offer GPS-tracking, online internet results, video feed in internet and live speaker at all events. ‘
The terrain can be described as very nice orienteering terrain, but physically tough. There are some diffuse areas, and it can be difficult to find the best micro routechoices. Some of the terrain is also very detailed. Above is an example of the old map for part of the terrain embargoed for the middle distance – see also the model event maps for middle and long here. Old maps of the embargoed areas are included further down in the preview article.
