Daily program

Sunday 23 June, Jubilee orienteering– 50 years – Long distance

The ski stadium at Idre Fjäll will be the venue for the first day. On the longer courses, we will offer some bare mountains and some very interesting and partly detailed slopes on and around Hemmeråsen. For the shorter and easier courses, the ”Plattenområdet” plus its surroundings will be used. Both the visibility and runnability are generally excellent in the area.

Monday 24 June, Jubileums-Rejset – 50 years – Middle distance

To celebrate Idrefjällveckan’s 50 years, we will arrange a replica of Idrefjällveckan’s founder – Kart-Bosse’s 40th anniversary. At the time of that anniversary, a course with 40 controls was offered. This summer there will be a course with 50 controls called ”Jubileums-Rejset 50” (50 controls/7.9 km) and we will also offer Jubileums-Rejset Half (30 controls / 4.5 km), Jubileums-Rejset Mini (20 controls/3.4 km) and finally Jubileums-Rejset Micro (10 controls / 1.6 km). The arena will be located on Gränjesvålen, which can be reached by foot, bike or via the ski-lift.

Tuesday 25 June – Thursday 27 June, IDREFJÄLLENS 3-days – 50 years – Stage 1–3

The 3-Day competition will be held at Burusjön for all three stages. The competition area offers a fine mix of detailed slopes, marshlands, and small hilly terrain with both larger and smaller ridges/heights. Large parts of the area are one long extended hill. On one of the competition days, the longer courses will explore the Hemmeråsen and on one of the other days the legendary ”Bermuda Triangle” area. For the shorter/easier courses, we use the area around the river Brunnan.

Maps

The maps have been drawn between 2019 and 2024 by Kenneth Kaijsajuntti and Per Forsberg. Map scales: 1:15 000, 1:10 000, 1:7 500.  Contour interval 5 metres.

Child care & String course

Childcare and String courses for younger children are available at the stadium every day. Please bring a SportIdent stick for the children to use at the String course.

”OL-Square” at Idre Fjäll

The square at Idre Fjäll will be the gathering place after the competitions, and we call it ”OL-square” with activities for everyone. The award ceremony for today’s competitions will of course also take place here and we hope that the ”OL square” will be the gathering point for everyone after the competitions – with everything from ”kart talk”, ”good food and drink”, music or just ”hanging out” with friends.

All participants in the youth classes up to 16 years old will receive a prize directly at the finish line (Sunday and Thursday). In the afternoon Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday, there will be a prize ceremony for the three best in the youth classes and drawings of prizes among all starters. There is an opportunity to win great prizes from Idre Fjäll in the form of cabin weeks and weekends.

QUIZ-nights with Per Forsberg

We also offer a Jubilee Quiz with Per Forsberg. A Jubilee QUIZ with that little extra considering that we are celebrating Idrefjällveckan 50 years. Anniversary QUIZ is on Sunday 23 June, but we also offer a ”regular” QUIZ on Monday 24 June. Form a team with a maximum of 5 members, no pre-registration, just come to the OL square. Note. The quiz is only in Swedish.

Training – IDREFJÄLLSOMMAREN 2024

Training sessions – whenever you want! Orienteering with a choice! You decide when you want to run, where you want to run and with whom you want to run.

From Friday 21 June to Sunday 25 August, we offer training sessions with marked control points and results via Livelox. Each area offers 10-12 different courses of varying difficulty (except for the Idre Fjäll village sprint with slightly fewer options).

New for Idrefjällsommaren 2024: we also offer complete technique packages in three different areas with slightly different exercises.

The training maps are purchased in the Idrefjällveckan Info Centre at the Activity Centre at Idre Fjäll. NOTE! No pre-registration is required. The training courses will then remain all summer and form the basis of IDREFJÄLLSOMMAREN 2024. Maps are available through self-service in the Activity Centre all summer, payment is made by Swish or Paypal.

The price for a high-quality digitally printed map with course imprint is SEK 80. (Any costs for plastic cases will be added – please bring your own to save the environment!)
