If the antique system works, the results (from both stages separately) will appear online to the web address told in https://ensilumenrastit.fi/2023/leirikilpailu/. If doesn´t, the results are complied together from the MTR-prints and will be written in the same address.

The first man and first woman in the finish with correct control punches will get small price.

Weather reservation and possible changes:
Possible changes/cancellations due temperature below -20 will be informed in https://ensilumenrastit.fi/2023/prologchase-race-training-6-12/ as early as possible. Temperature limit is -20C one hour before the first start.
Snow- and track condition:
There are 50-70cm soft snow in the terrain. Tracks have been groomed twice with the snow shoes in the beginning and 3 times with snowmobile (2 weeks ago and Monday + Tuesday before the training). That is about 50% compared to Ensilumen Rastit -tracks, therefore they may be partly soft.
There may be extra scooter tracks, competition tracks are groomed pulling 70cm radius tyre.
Event idea and warnings:
Idea is in the first hand to offer very hilly ski-O training for ski-Oers aiming for international championships in Austria. Trac system and course planning is somewhat that type what was served in Tour de Ski-O back in 90´s, or perhaps it was 2008. Therefore it may be sometimes type 2 fun. We hope you be a little bit extra careful at the downhills – even if it is important to practice being at the limit, it´s even more important to stay injury free. Snow around the track is slow to fall down, but much safer option than to hit a tree or another skier!
There is also open snowmobile track going trough the terrain, and skiers are using it. We warn the drivers about ski-orienteers, but please pay extra attention of the safety there, sepcially if you hear snowmobile moaning!
