In case of necessity, also age groups M85, W85 can be introduced (provided that at least 3 competitors of the respective age group have entered).

Groups M 210**, W 210** are for all the adult beginners.

In the open groups DIR 1 – DIR 4 (direct entering) the runner may choose the preferred course length irrespective of the age.

The proposed course lengths are approximate, and the exact parameters will be specified in the competition programme.

W8*, M8*, W10*, M10*, W12*, M12* - marked courses supported by tapes on the terrain. Punching is with SPORTident following the order shown on the map. Both the route marked on the terrain and the controls on the map are in the sequential order to be followed. Runners may prefer either to follow the route marked with the tapes or to take their own route between the controls. In classes W8* and M8* the main prize will be awarded to the competitors who have completed their course without the assistance of an adult. Separate classes "W8* ar vecākiem" and "M8* ar vecākiem" will be created for competitors who had been assisted by adults in at least one of the days. Competitors in classes W8* and M8* will not be disqualified for missing/wrong punch. 60 minutes will be added to the result in such case. Competitors with wrong/missing punch will be listed at the end of results (after all who had taken all controls correctly). For groups W8*, M8*, W10*, M10* controls are placed directly on the tape-marked way, while for groups W12* and M12* controls can be placed up to 150 metres away from the tape.

  • * - marked course
  • ** - technically easy courses
  • S - short course
  • L - long course

The winners of each day will be awarded with prizes. In the groups of M21E and W21E, regarding the final results of the three days, the first six places will be awarded. In other groups the number of places awarded will be published on 9 July in the competition centre.

There will be a lottery of competitor’s number bibs during the closing ceremony.

  • Results for M8/W8 competitors, who has been assisted by adults (parents,siblings etc.) on the course, the points are multiplied by factor 0.5. Scores for competitors participating in classes M21O** and W21O** are also multiplied by factor 0.5.
