In Otepää all the young athletes will compete in three different orienteering races. 

The long distance:

 

The terrain consists of mixed forest. The runnability of the forest varies from good in the coniferous areas to poor in the areas with deciduous trees. The forest has many small hills, which have steep slopes. Some of the hills have up to 70 metres height difference on slopes. The total height difference between the highest point on the map and the lowest point on the map is 90 metres. Between the hills there are marshes of varying size. There are many areas of cleared forest land and there are many fields. There are a few small roads and there are lots of different footpaths, cross-country ski trails and MTB tracks.

Friendship Team Event

 

The Friendship Team Event will take place in Otepää, the Winter Capital of Estonia. The city has the national Cross Country skiing and Biathlon skiing centre with many ski trails. The Otepää hill fort dominates the area. The hill fort was probably occupied about thirteen thousand years ago and also has the ruins of a medieval stone castle. The hill fort is located 165.6 metres above sea level.
