Interested in the Jukola and / or Harvester relay?

Jukola 2017

Matthew Vokes is canvassing interest from WCOC members regards participating in the Jukola and / or Harvester relay this year:

69th Jukola Relay: 17th – 18th June 2017: Joensuu, Finland (organised by Kalevan Rasti – Thierry Gueorgiou’s club)

Format: 7 leg relay, starting at 11pm; (so probably 2 – 3 legs in darkness. The Harvester Relay (see below), is the UK’s answer to Jukola)

Last year nearly 1700 teams (yes, you read that right) took part.

Summary: Fly out Friday morning, back Sunday night (but options to extend), with opportunity for some training as well as running the relay. Accommodation in organisers’ “military tents

Cost: estimated around £350 for the weekend. Entry fees go up (by 50 euros) by the end of the month. Therefore, please let me know if you are interested and I can see if we have enough people to make it viable by 29th January.

Any questions / more details, please email .

Harvester Relay: 24th-25thJune. I am the planner for this, and outline permission has been received for a great area in the (South) Lakes, so close to home for WCOC (and significantly cheaper)! It would be great to see at least 1, if not 2 WCOC teams out at this, regardless of whether a Jukola trip happens as well.

Many thanks
