Please read these instructions carefully. Please ensure that you have enough time to get to the games venue.


There is no need to confirm participation in the running and walking events. In order to ensure enough time for preparation for the athletes the heats will be made in advance, one day prior to the event.

Relays must be confirmed (see instructions below).

Withdrawals are made to the Technical Information Office (TIC).


Confirmation of field sports participation happens by gathering at the calling point in accordance with the calling timetable.

If you are busy at another event or medal ceremony and cannot make it to the calling, then you can confirm your participation in the event at the location of your event. It is also acceptable for a parent or guardian to come to the calling to explain the situation.


Sports with separate qualifying

  • No need to confirm participation in finals separately. But you must arrive to the Call room in time.

Relay race participants must confirm their participation and running order to the games office in writing no later than 90 minutes before the start of each race.

There are good warm up areas around the stadium.


The call room is place where all athletes go before their events begin.

The call room is located behind the main stadium construction at the beginning of the 100m.

In all sports, athletes go to the games area in complete groups through the call room. If an athlete has two events at the same time and the earlier one does not end before the calling time, he or she can explain the situation in the first calling, if possible, and then go straight to his or her second event.

Calling timetable 


Calling open = you may come to the call room to register

Go to field = calling is closing, and the group is going to the field By this time, you must be present, or you will not be able to participate (unless you have simultaneous events, in which case see above).


In sprints, the fastest eight (8) athletes go forward to the final. In the 9-13-year-olds, If athletes who have signed up do not show up, the final is filled on the basis of times. Once a race below has started, gaps left by no-shows are no longer filled. In the 14-17-year-olds, the gaps in final left by no-shows are not filled..

In the running and walking sports in which there is a direct final, times decide the ranking.

In field sports with separate qualifiers the best 12 athletes go forward to the final competition. The qualifer has three rounds. In separate final competitions, all finalists first have three rounds, of which the eight (8) best continue to the last three rounds in reverse performance order.

Parents’, guardians’ and trainers’ access to the competition area is limited. To ensure safe, flexible conduct of the games, access to the competition area and inner field is forbidden. We aim to reserve an area near the event competition area for communication with the athlete.

NB! In the heats for sprints, we are unfortunately unable to allow parents or trainers onto the field with the runners. During the starts of the 9-11-year-olds’ races, in particular, we are going to organize enough assistants to help the children with the starting blocks (using them is not mandatory).

In 9-11-year-olds’ events, parent or guardian may guide the athlete to the calling room and to the field if necessary. However, this will be done in such a way that no parents or guardians are on the competition field when the event begins. Modified 12.6.2019
