The orienteering relay event Jukola is composed of the Jukola relay (7 men in a team) and the Venla relay (4 women in a team). The Jukola relay is one of the greatest competitions of relay orienteering in the world each year attracting more than 15,000 participants. The first Jukola relay was organized in 1949 and it has consequently been organized every year in different sites around Finland. At the beginning, only the men could take part in the event. For the ladies, an individual race with common start was organized in 1951 and it then was turned into a relay race in 1978. The first Jukola relay attracted 41 teams total. Currently, the number of participants has grown and reached 1,500 teams in the male Jukola relay and 1,100 teams in the Venla relay.

In 2011 Jukola relay will be located in Virojoki close to Hamina in the Southeastern Finland. The same area was used in the Vehka-Jukola in 1992. The organizing club will be the Vehkalahden Veikot, the Jukola winner of the year 2006. - This area is more runnable than the average in Finland, says the mapper Janne Weckman in the bulletin #1. He is also one of the Jukola winners in 2006. -In the daylight the best teams run slightly over 5 minutes per kilometer, during the night about 6 min/K, estimates Weckman. -However, it will be tough orienteering from the beginning to the finish line. Weckman will also be the course setter in the Jukola relay. Another champion of the 2006 Jarkko Liuha will set the Venla courses for the ladies.
