Start order:

  • timed and untimed Nordic walkers 
  • timed and untimed walkers

 

The official competition time for participants that complete a timed distance is their net time (the time from crossing the start line to crossing the finish line). All timed runners, walkers, and Nordic walkers will have a timekeeping chip attached to the flip side of their race bib (see timing information in Competition Guidelines, Chapter 8).

 

The start area is located in front of the Arch at Tallinn Song Festival Grounds.

 

Participants may choose their start group based on their selected distance. For example, walkers may choose between three start groups. The start area closes when the relevant start group is full. Next participants start in the subsequent group.

The first 100 participants in the timed run receive their race number individually, and they will be allowed to enter the start area from the front of the start line.

Pursuit starts are used to ensure safety and provide participants with more space to move on the track.

 

EVERY Maijooks participant that crosses the finish line receives a valuable gift bag!
Show your race bib and collect your gift bag containing gift from our collaboration partners after the race from the Secretariat tent. Gift bags are issued until 4:30 PM on competition day only.


COMPETITION CENTER AND TRACK
Be sure to review the competition center and track map before the competition day.
The fourth and fifth kilometer of the track features a Saku water stop offering water and Saku Vichy Vitamiin beverage. 
As Maijooks is looking forward to welcoming a record number of participants, arrive as early as possible in the morning, equipped with a boatload of time and patience. As the race track may become crowded due to the high number of racers, make sure you are mindful of other participants. Remember that Maijooks is a recreational sports event where it’s not about winning, but about participating. Adopt a friendly attitude towards your fellow competitors, and refrain from rushing about on the track. Notify a judge or the medical personnel of anyone in need of help.
