All competitors are required to wear a race bib which must be affixed to the bike. Bibs and equipment to affix the bib should be collected from the information tent. The same bib is used for all three stages (unless the competitor is in different classes on different stages).
In all classes touch free SPORTIdent AIR punching is used.
In the prestart area the chip has to be cleared and checked in the presence of an event organiser. The checking station will start the chip (it will beep and blink for a few seconds). The chip is turned off when passing through the finish gate. It is suggested to affix the SI-card to your wrist.
The working radius of the punching system is 1.8m which allows passing through the control at high speed. The chip will blink to confirm a punch. NB! Do not touch or hit the controls when moving on the bike!
On long distance, some control points have extra regular SI stations that should be used if a punch cannot be registered with the touch free station.

Maximum biking time
Middle distance 3 hours, sprint 2 hours, long distance 4 hours.
Start and maps
Prestart time is 2 minutes. The map is received 1 minute before the start time.
Maps are collected at the finish and will be returned to the competitor after starts are finished, on Saturday at approx 18:15 and in Raeküla at approx 13:20.
The scale for middle and long distance maps is 1:15000 with contour interval 2.5m. The sprint map is scale 1:7500 and contour interval 2.5m. Maps were completed in the summer of 2017.
Original map was created by Ville Vinkel with corrections by Sander Blehner in 2017.
All maps are A4 size, printed on non-waterproof material
In the M21 class there is a map change in middle distance (18th control point) and long distance (22nd control point) stages.
Current state of the terrain and possible hazards
In Jõulumäe the forest floor has been flattened and the tracks widened a little around the disc golf courses, there are also several new small trails that are not present on the map.
In Raeküla, the trees have lots of leaves and visibility has decreased compared to when the map was created.
Caution is advised when crossing and using larger roads. Traffic speeds have been reduced but the roads are open for traffic.
On both terrains there might be people on roads who are not aware of the event. Please be careful! Pay special attention on the long distance event when crossing a bridge to reach the finish -- this is a public road that might have people moving on it.
All competitors are required to wear a helmet and a racing bib attached to the bike, otherwise the competitor will not be allowed to start!
The course setter's commentary
Jõulumäe - Jõulumäe relief grounded landscape features fast-moving roads and very slowly driven paths and sandy ski slopes. However, it is still possible to find the best way to drive quickly with the best possible route choices. This is likely to be a landscape with one of the densest paths in Estonia, where passing along the right one can be very easy. Several checkpoints can be seen at the same time in open pine forest.
Raeküla - Compared to the scenery of Jõulumäe, the Raeküla is a land with a much faster and stronger northern path, with both large paths of trails and narrow paths. The network of roads and paths is a little bit smaller compared to the Jõulumäe, but in some places there is also a very detailed paths network. There are few sand tracks on the terrain, and generally courses avoid these parts. I have tried to plan long-range and multi-choice travel options where you can choose between a shorter and more technical or lengthy, but physically less, road option. There are also very clear paths in the landscape, which can be difficult to notice from the beginning. Be careful on both the narrower footpaths and the large tracks where other health athletes can also be seen.
Parking is free of charge in both event centers.
At Jõulumäe, there are some small storage units that can be used for storing bikes. There are also some metal bike racks in front of the main building (limited amount of places).
