Louna-Jukola

Big mistake on #9, where I stopped at the wrong cliff/hill, and the control was just to the right, but I did a big loop left before realizing this.

Otherwise mostly OK going in terrain that was much easier to run in compared to 2014 in Kuopio.

Kuopio Jukola

2nd leg of Kuopio-Jukola. Quite hilly terrain with soft&stony ground which was difficult to run on.

#4 drifted down the hill to the wrong control, then ran past my own control and backtracked to find it.
#5 past the control down the hill to the swamp, then back up the hill again.
#8 again found the wrong control before my own.

Jämsä-Jukola statistics

Here's the distribution of total time for teams in the Jämsä-Jukola relay:

Jukola 2013_fig

Here are the distributions of individual times for the seven legs of the relay.

Jukola 2013, 1st leg, 12.2 km_fig

The histogram from the first leg shows bunching of runners into groups - this is different from all the remaining legs.

Jukola 2013, 2nd leg, 13.0 km_fig Jukola 2013, 3rd leg, 14.4 km_fig
The 2nd and 3rd leg look quite similar. Note how the histograms lean to the left - there are many amateurs of varying ability which contribute to the long tail to the right.

Jukola 2013, 4th leg, 7.8 km_fig Jukola 2013, 5th leg, 7.7 km_fig

The 4th and 5th legs are shorter and faster.

Jukola 2013, 6th leg, 11.7 km_fig Jukola 2013, 7th leg, 15.1 km_fig
The 6th leg is again longer with the final 7th leg being the longest of them all.

Jämsä-Jukola

jukola2013_2

I ran the second stage (13 km) of the Jukola relay in Jämsä on Sunday.

Clear skies and a more northerly location meant there was much more light during the whole night. Not nearly as pitch-black as I remember in Vantaa last year.

Since there are about 1600 teams competing there will be tracks from 2000 or more runners in the forest when starting the 2nd-stage from about mid-way or worse down the field. This means it's really more trail-running than independent orienteering 🙂 There are tracks to and from each control - you just have to pick the right track among many.

Valio-Jukola

I ran the second stage of the Jukola relay around 1am to 4am on Saturday-Sunday night:

Jukola-training, Kuusijärvi

This Kuusijärvi map/course is one of five training-courses for Jukola, quite close to where the event itself will take place.
