Arranged for the first time in 1986, Youth Jukola is a separate competition from Jukola. It is a relay of 7 legs for 11-18 year old orienteers. Teams must consist of both girls and boys. The approximate duration of the race is three hours.
Besides orienteering clubs, also combination teams from 2-3 small clubs can participate. Even schools, scout troops and other organizations for young people can participate under certain conditions. There is even a orienteer pool from which combination teams are created.
