Special classes TM and TL, our Trail Run Orienteering classes: This is for runners who like the challenge of trail running and would like to try orienteering, but aren’t as proficient in map reading and navigation. The courses will be using linear features only, meaning tracks, trails and rides with controls being beside the track and on tricky junctions, right at the turn off. Distances will be longer than on the classic orienteering courses. The ideal courses for trail runners who want to join the event but appreciate less map reading. However, no difference to orienteering courses in the city sprint. 

Class reduction: In case there are less than 6 competitors in a class, this class might be combined with the next higher one.
