The competition terrain (~ 250 km ²) is located centrally in Latvia, in the Engure and Tukums municipalities, and lies between the Gulf of Riga in the North, Ķemeri National Park in the East, motorway A10 (E22) Riga - Ventspils in the South and regional roads in the West. 20% of the proposed competition terrain has never been used for rogaining and orienteering events. Part of the terrain is the Ķemeri National Park, famous for its wild nature.

European Rogaining Championships, to be held on 22-23 August 2020 in Latvia, is going to happen!
Despite the present situation that is affected by the aftermath of the pandemics, we are committed to organize the race. The map is ready, the course setter has finalized the location of controls, the event centre is ready to host the competitors, the organisers and volunteers are proceeding with preparations in order to run the event in a manner that is equally safe to the participants and organisers.
Certainly, everyone will be obliged to comply with additional requirements, such as keeping distance, using disinfectants and other. Nevertheless, together we shall succeed in making this a truly sportive and long since anticipated experience. As to any additional rules or changes in the programme related to the safety of the race, we shall inform you in further Bulletins and Pre-start Information.
We are aware and fully understand that it is not an easy decision about taking part in the European Rogaining Championships – both due to the disease itself that is still raging worldwide and its consequences in the form of traveling and mobility restrictions as well asdecrees of national governments.
In any case, we are expecting you!
