Krátký den is an orienteering relay race. The idea is based on 10mila & Jukola.

What awaits you in January 2024

A new map in terrain where orienteering has never been run before. Made by verified mapmaker Zdenek Rajnošek.

The area of the race is adjacent to the area of the 2024 Czech Relay/Teams Championship. Come and taste this terrain so you can better prepare for next year.

The course will be prepared by Standa Mokrý, the setter of the final of the 2023 Czech Championship on the long course. Look forward to even more controls and more experiences from the forest.

Last three legs will be run during the night. Depending on the weather and your speed, we recommend having a headlamp prepared also for the 4th leg.

Relay team consist of five legs.
There is a possibility to send two athletes on same leg (2nd, 3rd and 4th). The faster runner of this pair hands over to the next runner in the team. If the faster runner miss punches, the time of the slower runner of the pair is being counted in the overall relay team result (the overall relay time will be calculated after the race). In the unlikely situation of both runners miss punching, the team is disqualified.

Other info


The SPORTident punching and timing system will be used. Touch free mode (Air+) will be activated additionally to classic SPORTident punching. The SIAC card needs to be within 50 cm of the unit for it to be registered. Last leg runner has to punch the finish unit manually (=the SI card must be placed into the finish unit).

In the unlikely situation of SIAC failing to register in touch free mode, the competitor must punch manually by placing the SIAC chip into the SPORTident unit. In the unlikely situation of an SI unit failing to respond with direct punch (neither a feedback sound nor a light signal), the competitor must punch manually on the map using the pin-punch on the control stand.

If you’ll have to pin-punched any controls on your map, you must hand your map to the finish director at the finish area and report which control was pin-punched.

The same SPORTident can not be used twice during one race.
