The day before the second cheaper enrollment step expires (Februar 28) there are already over 700 enrollees including fitness and family series. Seppo Linjakumpu, Secretary General of Fin5 2020 Kuusamo-Posio Orienteering Week, is pleased with the situation:
– We aim for 2000 racing orienteering and 500 fitness orienteering, so we are on schedule.
In 2014, 4,500 orienteerers competed in the Fin5 Orienteering Week in Kuusamo. At that time, there was no second orienteering week in Finland at that time.
– Now we are more realistic in the number of participants due to the fact that the Kainuu Rastiviikko will be orientated a week earlier in Suomussalmi.
There will be quite a lot of things happening in the northern orienteering field next summer, as the Jukolan ja Venlojen Viesti will also be navigated in the north, in Rovaniemi under the symbol of the Arctic Circle (Napapiiri).
– We cooperate with Napapiiri-Jukola and Kainuu Rastiviikko with marketing, materials and personnel, for example, Linjakumpu says.
