In groups W8* and M8* the main prize will be awarded to the competitors who have completed their course without the assistance of an adult. For groups W8*,M8*, W10*, M 10* controls are placed directly on the tape-marked way, while for groups W12* and M12* controls can be placed up to 150 metres away from the tape.

Explanation:
  • * - marked course
  • ** - technically easy courses
  • S - short course
  • L - long course
  • 0 - beginners’ course
