County message in Kontiolahti on 24 February 2024

North Karelia's skiers gather in Kontiolahti with a traditional message.

North Karelia Regional Relay will be held at the Kontiolahti Biathlon Stadium on Saturday 24 February 2024. There will be a fast-paced skiing day, which offers skiing enthusiasts of different ages the opportunity to experience the charm of the relay race in different series.

A and B series teams traditionally consist of municipal teams from the province in a 7-part relay. There are a total of 10 teams in the A series and the rest of the municipal teams are in the B series. The first seven teams in the A series will keep a place in the 2025 relay A series, and the rest will be relegated to the B series. The top three in the B series will move up to the A series next year.

C-series teams can consist of groups of friends or formations formed by companies/associations. The C series message contains four parts.

The mini-county relay is a 5-leg relay aimed at junior leaguers.

You can find more information about the message on the competition page.

Welcome to the provincial message.
