Jukola of All Times – Arctic Circle Jukola will be held in Rovaniemi 19.-20.6.2021

Arctic Circle Jukola is turning out to be the Jukola of all times since the world’s largest orienteering event Jukola Relay has been postponed for one year due to Coronavirus epidemic.

The Arctic Circle Jukola will be held 19.-20.6.2021 in Rovaniemi with a coherent decision made by the Jukola leading team, the Finnish Orienteering Federation and by the organising club Ounasvaara Ski Club (Ounasvaaran Hiihtoseura). Even though Ounasvaara Ski Club was completely ready to successfully organize the event in summer 2020 according to Martti Anttila the competition director, chairman of the Jukola leading team Juhani Sihvonen stated that there were no point in postponing the race till August, and that they unanimously decided instead to move organizing of Jukola Relay to the next year.

Losing the aspect of racing under the Midnight Sun was not what the club wished for. “Having waited for 40 years, we can wait for one more” said Anttila.

Arctic Circle Jukola keeps all registrations and fees valid so the registered teams will be moved to year 2021. New timetable for registrations will be announced later on and updated on the Arctic Circle Jukola web page and of course on the event invitation.

@antti_tuisku ❤️‍🔥Rovaniemi 

Rovaniemi-native artist Antti Tuisku performed two huge gigs at Helsinki Olympic Stadium on Friday and Saturday. "Bailantai" was so far the biggest music show a Finnish artist has ever performed there. And what a Show it was! 

We are so proud of Antti ❤️‍🔥✨

See millions of stars from a premium class hotel (or, if you're lucky, even the Northern Lights) ✨

✨@glass_resort on the Arctic Circle opens at 30th September.

✨In all probability, there won't be snow by then as the first snow is normally due sometime between October and November. Permanent snow arrives later.
