Training in spring 2014
There will be six different training maps available in three training areas near Kuopio in spring 2014. The maps are varied and well suitable for Jukola training.

Training maps cost 5 euros each, and the postage. Alternatively the training maps (2) of each training area are available as OCAD attachments, 120 euros / file.

There will be a weekly orienteering event on May 29th in the terrain of Kuopio-Jukola between 2 – 5 pm. The map will be a printout map of the Kuopio-Jukola competition map. The control points will have a control buck and electronic punching in Jukola style. The controls will also be marked with reflectors so it will be possible to train at night time as well.
