Both days a TrailO map (ISSOM2007, as in ETOC), scale 1:4000, eq. 2,5 m. Mapped in 2019 by Janne Seppälä for foot-O and refined 2020. Terrain has not ever been used for trail-O and it consist of very hilly forest, surface rock of the higher areas, some relatively steep cliffs and an old gravel pit area. Thus, it should be a good rehearsal for ETOC2020. Routes in use are mostly small gravel roads, on one day there will be a steep hill where some assistance will be given if necessary.
Part of the orienteering map 2019:
There will be some special arrangement in order to diminish the amount of social contacts and touching shared things, e.g. time control maps might be individual and/or the marshall wont be presenting maps or flags.
