” Via Kainuu”
Funded by Interreg II Karelia 1996-1999

Objective of the project

The objective of the project was to promote, develop and test the “Karelian Circuit” track and field relay. Within the project, maps of cities along the route were prepared, indicating hotels, gas stations, hospitals, places of rest, monuments and other necessary information. Trilingual brochures about the “Karelian Circuit” have been prepared, and an advertising video has been shot for exhibitions and fairs. The event is promoted at Finnish and European fairs, in newspapers and at sporting events with the aim of increasing the number of participants by 3-4 times.
