Fin5-suunnistusviikolla lapsiperheet on huomioitu erityisen hyvin. Perheet voivat elää oman aikataulun mukaisesti, yksi lähtee aiemmin, toinen myöhemmin tai vaikka samaan aikaan.
"A-lyhyt sarjoissa on vapaat lähtöajoilla, jotta suunnistuspäivästäsi tulee aiempaa joustavampi” toteaa asiantuntijamme. Perheille ja kaveriporukoille jää enemmän aikaa yhdessäoloon. Tervetuloa Finille!

Jani Lakanen sai tyttäreltään Liljalta hyviä neuvoja ja ohjeita Särkänniemi-suunnistuksessa.
Myös tämän maailmanmestarin tapaa Fin5-suunnistusviikolla. Hän on laatinut Jwocin pitkän matkan radat.

Näön heikkeneminen on varsin luonnollista iän myötä. Niinpä suunnistuskartan on myös elettävä ajassa!

Olettehan H/D45 ja yli huomanneet, että mittakaavalla on suorituksenne suhteen merkitystä, kun karttakuva selkenee!

Fin5 2017 H/D45 ja sitä vanhemmat juoksevat 1:7500 kartalla. Katsokaapa oheista kuvaa niin ymmärrätte miksi haluamme tarjota ikääntyneemmille selkeämmän kartan!

PS. Karttapalat ovat läheltä Fin5-maastoa eli viime syksyn R2 SM-pitkältä.
