Adventure orienteering VÄLE PÄTT


It is a selection orienteering event with 4 hours time limit where you can choose which checkpoints (CP) to pick. So you choose your own route distance and direction. 

The word adventure refers to some special tasks which take place in some of the CP-s and that add some excitement to the competition.

The teams get the maps before the start (and rent SI cards if necessary). SI card is an electronic device that registries your movement in CPs. The CPs on the track is marked with orienteering marks (orange and white) and you receive different amounts of points for taking the CP-s. The points depend on the difficulty and distance from the HQ.  

The maximum time is 4 hours. The team who gets the most points is the winner. Every minute over time (finishing after 16:00) gives minus 1 point. In the CP-s with extra tasks, the instructions are either written or given verbally by an instructor.
