Respond to the survey! By race buses to Hossa from Kajaani and Ruka and Kuusamo?
In last year's feedback, we received a suggestion that we should organize bus transportation for participants on the competition day, Saturday, from Kajaani and Kuusamo to Hossa and back.
With this survey, we are investigating whether there is demand for this service, and based on the results, we will decide whether to implement it.
If we proceed with these bus transfers, they will be available for pre-sale on our online store in February-March 2024.
Responding to the survey does not constitute a binding reservation for transportation, but we hope that you will answer the survey as truthfully as possible.
Respond to the survey by February 29, 2024!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2024!
We wish everyone a very peaceful Christmas and good trail running for the year 2024!
The people of Kainuu Trail are on holiday at the turn of the year. Read the announcement for instructions on how to make sport benefit payments during the rest of the year.
