General info on the event for media
The Jukola relay is a top orienteering event, and the results and athmosphere interest people both in Finland and abroad. The competition centre of Jämsä-Jukola lies in the Myllymäki area in Jämsänkoski, Jämsä. This is the first Jukola organised near Jämsä since 1978, when the relay took place in Halli, Kuorevesi. The event in question was historical, as the very first Venla relay was competed that very year.
Many years have passed since then, as the 2013 Jukola relay is the 65th race and Venlas will run for the 36th time.
The Jukola relay is not only the biggest orienteering relay in the world, but also the biggest sports event in Finland. We sure hope there will be a tough race for the victory, for which approximately 15 000 orienteers will battle.
