Finland 2023

In August 2023, ten members of the WMJS squad joined members of the Welsh squad on tour in Finland.   Five full days high quality training in beautiful Finnish forests including competing in an event hosted by a local club, plus a day exploring the sites of Helsinki including the UNESCO World Heritage island fortress of Suomenlinna. 

The week ended with the squads entering the 156-team 7-leg Nuorten Jukola, the world's largest youth orienteering relay. A huge set-up, with high quality live TV coverage. A fantastic experience.
