The national competition offers long-distance orienteering with individual start, including for TrailO and open classes.

Tuesday June 27 – IDREFJÄLLEN’s 3-days stage 1

A final long distance with pursuit for competition classes HD14-HD65, also at Arena Bergevägen. Starting right at the treeline on Hemmeråsen, all classes get to experience the open mountain terrain. Right out of the start, the shorter courses are rewarded with beautiful and challenging downhill orienteering all the way to the finish line. The longer courses also get to experience completely new orienteering areas on Hemmeråsen’s open but detailed slopes.

After Run

The square at Idre Fjäll will be the gathering place after the competitions and we call it the ”O-square” with activities for everyone such as quizzes, “meet-a-champ” and the Livelox hour. This is also where the award ceremonies will be held after each competition day, both for the best performances of the day and lottery prizes among all competitors.

Classes & Course Lengths

Will be according to the Swedish Orienteering Federation (SOFT) recommendations for each distance. Course lengths will be published in the spring of 2023.
