If your accommodation is in the centre of Kuopio, it is advisable to approach the competition centre from the north.
The map where you can see how to go to the competition centre can be seen on the other side of the parking permit (you can also find it on our website (Competition -> Traffic connections).
When approaching the competition centre, place the parking permit inside the windscreen so that it is clearly visible. Follow the VIP/Media signs. Leave the parking permit in your car so that it is clearly visible.
The Media centre is right next to the finishing line. The fastests route from the car park to the Media centre: walk 200 m on the main road, go through the main gate to the competition centre, go straight ahead and you will find Media centre on the right. A doorman will let you in when you tell him you represent the media.
In the media info you will get your ID-card, photographer’s waistcoat (if you asked to have one) and other material needed.

For photographers there are plenty of options available, but some of them limited. You will get more information in the Media centre.
