Overview

Runners will travel through uninhabited wilderness on a linear course starting out from Lahemaa National Park in the north and running 42k south, finishing in the center of Kõrvemaa Nature Reserve in Aegviidu village.

The course is ca. 42,2 km, marked with neon marking tape on trees and branches, arrow signs. About half of the course follows National hiking trail with red/white or orange tot signs on trees. The next marking is always visible from the previous one. In addition, there are arrow signs drawn on ground with spray paint to indicate the correct route in trail crossings. Completing the course doesn’t require navigation.

Beware! The course follows narrow trails, wooden bogtrails, forestry roads etc. Your feet will probably get muddy and wet! Course map with water stations, can be downloaded from the race website from October 1st. The map is intended for monitoring own progress along the course and for spotting own location in case of emergency. Distance markings on the map are signed in terrain with km-signs (every 5km). As it is a trail run km’s are not 100% accurately measured.

The finish closes at 18:30. This leaves maximum 7h30min for reaching finish. Participants finishing later than 18:30 will not be timed and organisers might leave. Crossing Tallinn-Narva highway is allowed only through pedestrian tunnel on marked course!
