Iltarastit in English

Iltarastit is open for anybody. You do not need to be a member of a club. Iltarastit is not a competition but an orienteering even with time taking provided as a courtesy of the organisers. You participate on your own risk.

There are alternative courses from beginners to more experienced; 2, 4, 4V, 5, 7 or 9 km. The longer courses are also more demanding from orienteering skills point of view. 4V is a short, but demanding course.

The identification number of the control in the terrain is shown in the control descriptions on the side of the map. Iltarastit staff is happy to assist you. You can start at any time you choose. You can check results online with your total time and split times when you have completed the course.

The controls are equipped with EMIT-devices – the Nordic system for electronic punching and timing. You can rent your own device if you don’t have one.

We expect you to behave as a good citizen and avoid entering private courtyards or running on cultivated land. You must not use or cross big highways or rails. You may use or cross a road but must be careful – they are not blocked from other traffic. You are not limited to the track alternatives provided by the organisers but you are free to draw you own track by connecting the controls as you see best fit. Maps with all controls are available.

The controls remain in the terrain usually two weeks after the event. The dates are shown on the map. You can use the maps and tracks at any time best for you.

You can also by the map from Suunnistajan Kauppa (Museokatu 34, Helsinki), Pirkkola swimming hall cafe or Teboil Pakila.
