There will be two different programs. One for people interested in more competitive training, and one for more introduction to orienteering.

The competitive-focused training will start at 10 AM and go till 11:20 AM. Kids are welcome at this training. We will start with a terrain run warm up and intervals. Then agility training, and finish with a couple orienteering exercises. The focus is on back-to-basics. There will be beginner, intermediate, and advanced training.

The more-slow-paced beginner training will start at 10:30 and go till 12:30. There will be an hour of introduction and education, and then participants will be able to try out a training exercise on their own. The focus for this will be on introducing the map symbols and the basic skills.
