At other obstacles outside ”Hietsku” there will be specific marked penalty rounds. 

My friend helps me out at an obstacle?
As long as its safe and you don’t interfere or block other participants, it is okay to help each other out. Remember, to have fun is the most important thing in this race.

I don’t find the next obstacle?
Run back to previous obstacle and ask for advice from race organisers.
The obstacles are placed in: Hietsku, Wasklot and the City lane.

I don’t find the control point?
The control point is attached to the obstacle, in connection to a red flag. 

Find it and do an electronic punching. You need to have your timechip 20 cm from the electronic punching unit. You have been registered when the unit blinks.

Read the instructions about where next obstacle is located and continue the race.
