Timmo Tammemäe: EOW is a fantastic chance to explore Estonia

Timmo Tammemäe is a founder of the Tallinn Orienteering Week, Event Director of World Masters Orienteeri


Timmo Tammemäe is a founder of the Tallinn Orienteering Week, Event Director of World Masters Orienteering Championships 2016 and a well-known organizer of sports events in Estonia. Since World Orienteering Championships 2017 are held in Estonia, Tallinn Orienteering Week is renamed Estonian Orienteering Week (EOW), and is an Official Spectator Race of WOC 2017.

We asked Timmo to uncover a bit, what to expect from EOW and what makes it difficult to arrange such big events.

- What are the most difficult things, you have to keep in mind, when organizing large orienteering events?

The most difficult thing about it is to figure out, what are people´s expectations and desires, considering dates of the event and the overall environment in which you have to operate. To be successful, one needs to have enough experience. It is also important to plan the event carefully and know exactly what people excpect from a good event. Only then, we can be sure, that we can offer the best experience for participants.

- Is EOW somewhat different from other orienteering events, you have organized before?

It’s different in the overall size, length and internationality of the event. Our aim is to offer a new experience, emotions and competition arenas for the competitors every year. Last year, we organized the orienteering week with WMOC 2017 in North-Estonia. This year, we are organizing it as a WOC 2017 spectator race in South-Estonia. You can run in the same terrains as the world champions do. Estonian O-week is like a big carnival for both participants and organizers.

- How’s it with EOW at the moment, everything going as planned?

It is going more intensive week by week. At the moment, everything goes as planned. The snow is finally melted and now we can test the courses planned in the winter. There are also other details we have to work on. Since organizing such a big event needs a lot of staff, then one of the most important tasks is to find enough volunteers to help us out. If you don’t want to run, you can help us to organize. All the information is on our web page. 


- WMOC 2016 got a lot o positive feedback from competitors, but is there anything, you would like to do even better in EOW?

The devil is in the little details. This time, we really focus on the competition areas. It is important, that one can run and cheer the best in WOC and there are no problems with transport and other things, which can disturb it. Also, we want the volunteers to have more fun while organizing. They are important to us!

- Why should orienteers around the world take part of EOW?

Because WOC is organized in Estonia for the first time ever and this is a fantastic way to support the athletes of your country! You will get a fantastic experience.

- Please describe EOW terrains a bit, what makes those special for orienteers?

I start with Tartu – a City of good thoughts- , the competition centre of the whole event.  Tartu is a youthful university city, where there’s many things to do also after competitions. In Tartu, EOW has a city sprint with very good runability. The center of the event is the Song Cradle of Tartu near the city centre, where the WOC sprint is held.

Estonian Orienteering Week consists of 6 competitions. In addititon to Tartu, there are sprint races also in Viljandi, with it’s steep climbs and ruins of an old castle. After those events, we go to forest distances, where you should expect demanding terrains, with detailed relief.

Estonian O-week - last chance to see Thierry Georgiou in WOC action!

Did you know that WOC 2017 is the last champs for the Thierry Georgiou? Attending to Estonian O-week is



Did you know that WOC 2017 is the last champs for the Thierry Georgiou? Attending to Estonian O-week is a fantastic chance to see Thierry ending his international career as a runner.


Thierry Gueorgiou announced in late-November 2016, that he is ending his international career after WOC 2017 in Estonia.

After that, he will become an assistant coach of the Swedish National team starting from 1st of August 2017, with the main focus on orienteering technique. 

One of the best ways to honor the legend is to come to Estonian O-week. Estonian O-week is a WOC 2017 spectator race, which allows you to see the WOC action on the spot, and run in same terrains in afterwards.

The French orienteer has won more than 20 gold medals in international competitions. His first senior debut at WOC 1997 was in Grimstad, Norway, at the age of 18.

Estonian O-week takes place together with the 2017 Nokian Tyres World. Orienteering Championships in Tartu and South Estonia, with the competition terrains in Tartu, Viljandi, Rõuge and Elva-Vitipalu. It consists of 6 days of competitions with 2 rest days in between. There are 2 sprint/urban races and 4 forest races.

Tallinn Orienteering Week 2015 starts in less than 2 weeks and we are really excited about it. Today we are happy to introduce Timmo Tammemäe, the event director of TOW 2015. We asked him some questions about the competition.

Why should people take part in Tallinn Orienteering Week?

Orienteering Week is the biggest orienteering event in Estonia. It is organized by really fantastic and cheerful people, who will give everything in their power to make this event positively memorable. Every year we choose the best terrains in Northen Estonia for these six days and we update or draw entire new maps for the competition. As organizers we would like to offer full service for the participants: good competition info, startlists, correct driving directions and signposts, parking, visually beautiful centre, competition info on stand, mandate, tent for competitors, speaker, child care, course for small children, WC, map for warming up before start, top-quality O-course, water points, check with the results at the finish, online and on the stand results, GPS, luggage area, eating opportunities, awards for the best, photos from photographers etc. Plus we offer a great opportunity to spend a cultural vacation. We have put together a cultural programm for the competitors.

What will be missed out by not coming?

They will miss out on great experiences, meetings of the orienteering community and all the things I mentioned above.

Tell us a memorable story from some previous Tallinn Orienteering Week events.

There are some good stories from every year. A lot of them are related to organizing the competition. For example when some problems have been solved quickly and smoothly. But… we have also received praise from a foreign participant: "All of this was excellent, and especially impressive for such a small orienteering club with 50 members". At that time, there were only 15 members in SK100 club. Or another time at the prize giving ceremony, where a French woman asked after the handshake: "But where is the kiss?!". Naturally the mistake was corrected :).

The registration for Tallinn Orienteering Week ends 27.07.2015. Starts are in the evenings. Sign yourself up and come to the biggest orienteering event in Estonia. If you can’t take part in all six days, then choose the days you can!

 

All the best, Timmo Tammemäe, Event director of Tallinn Orienteering Week 2015

Tallinn O-Week 2015 organizers along with the event director went to Nelijärve to check out one last time the middle distance terrain and control points. Comments from the course team: “The forest is primeval offering many choices to run straight through the forest or take the paths around it. Strength and orienteering accuracy will come in handy at Nelijärve terrain. Competition centre is located near the magical lake Purgatsi.”

Come and check it out!

Meet Jaan Tarmak, the Event Director for TOW

It's time to introduce the people who are working hard to make TOW the best orienteering experience this year. We are pleased to introduce Jaan Tarmak, the Event Director for TOW.

It's time to introduce the people who are working hard to make TOW the best orienteering experience this year. We are pleased to introduce Jaan Tarmak, the Event Director for TOW

Why orienteering?
Jaan: Different people have different reasons for doing orienteering. For me it is interesting first and foremost, because it offers the brain complicated tasks to solve – it is an „intellectual activity“. One hour of cross country can be unbearably boring for me, but when running with a map, an hour goes by without noticing it.

What do you do on Tallinn O-Week?
Jaan: I am the event director for TOW, which means that my tasks are connected to solving questions relating to general organization, coordinating the work of different sub fields and tying all the fields together. Many of my tasks are related to giving advice and support to the different directors the sub fields. More generally – most of my tasks are concentrated to the planning stage so I can asses my work by how many tasks I have during the actual competition week – the less I have, the better I have done my job!

Why come to TOW?
Jaan: Tallinn O-Week is a unique event in Estonia and also the neighbouring countries. One of the peculiarities is the package of different terrains and competition formats, which provides a challenge for all runners. Also, we try to give the competitor enough freedom so that they can enjoy everything that Tallinn and its surroundings have to offer. The competitors can choose themselves if they will skip the competition some days. Also, on two days it is possible to choose your starting time and all competitions are in the afternoon, which leaves the day open for other activities and allows one to participate after the workday. Come and experience it yourself!

March 1 is the first registration date for Tallinn Orienteering Week. Since there have been some inquiries then we would like to clarify the following topic:
Due to the fact that World Masters Championships 2016 take place in Tallinn then the O-Week City Race will not take place in the Old Town in 2014 nor in 2015. The race will be held in the city center and the terrain will cover the modern City-area of Tornimäe, the 1950’s city blocks in Sibulaküla and areas with wooden houses near the Maakri and Tatari streets. A new map will be drawn for these races. The event centre will be located on Vabaduse square, which is not an embargoed area and is approachable through an underground passage.
In addition to that, a completely new map will be drawn of the Keila-Joa area (terrain for O-Week final) and all the other maps will be renewed.

We hope to see many participants!
The organizing team of Tallinn Orienteering Week

Today the WRE middle distance was held in Northern-Kõrvemaa. Tallinn O-Week middle distance course offered a thrilling and dramatic show for competitors and spectators especially in W21 class.
Although on the first quarter of the course the leader was Ljubov Kutsenina from Russia, the lead was taken by Merike Vanjuk who showed the best split times for most of the course. Only 1 kilometer before the finish Vanjuk’s advantage was still more than 1 minute but missing couple of checkpoints in the end gave Evely Kaasiku the opportunity to take the lead.
Kaasiku’s winning time in the finish was 36 minutes and 54 seconds, beating second place (Merike Vanjuk) time by 25 seconds and third place (Kirti Rebane) time by 55 seconds.
In the men’s class the first position was taken by an experienced runner Andreas Kraas, who could avoid larger errors on the course and outrun the second place Erkki Aadly by almost 2 minutes. Sergei Rjabõškin on his first year in M21 class won the third place on the middle distance.
On Saturday (June 22) traditional 100 CP run will be held on the same terrain. As the name of the competition refers, M21 class will have 100 checkpoints on their course.
