Do you want to cover Tiomila 2024 on site?

Tiomila is the orienteering relay that lasts for a day, from daylight, into dusk, further into the night, and then ultimately decided in the early hours of the morning. More than 900 teams and over 5,500 runners participate every year during the Tiomila weekend.

During Tiomila, the world’s elite compete for the year’s most prestigious relay; further back in the field, many orienteers, on the same courses as the world elite, struggle to beat neighboring clubs and meet the challenge of reaching the finish line in the competition that lasts from evening to morning.

This year’s Tiomila will also be historic as the competition format has been revamped to make it a more equitable Tiomila. When darkness falls on Saturday evening, it will be the premiere of night legs in the women’s relay.

Tiomila Nynäshamn, one of the world’s oldest and largest orienteering relays.

May 4-5, 2024.

The youth relay with around 300 teams starts the Tiomila day on Saturday afternoon at 2:30 PM and is expected to finish at 4:00 PM.

The men’s relay starts at 5:30 PM with three legs before the competition takes a break and makes way for the historic women’s start, which begins when darkness has fallen at 9:30 PM. The men’s relay resumes at 11:30 PM with orienteering through the night and is expected to finish at 6:20 AM on Sunday morning. The women’s relay resumes with a pursuit start at 7:00 AM, with the winning team expected to finish at 10:20 AM.
