    the map also two wells which are in suitable locations on the terrain increasing the total number of water drops to 7 And you can fill your water packs at the hash house from the taps Lauri Leppik 8WRC2008 co ordinator 2008 08 28 Well during other longer Adventure Race competitions in Southern Estonia our team and many others have been using natural water for drinking For weaker organism it can cause running stomack but most endurance people can well handle it The thing is that the area we are competing is a natural park that means there is basically no industrial or agricultural pollution The only thing that can make water undrinkable is really when it is standing water So I would say you can judge the quality of water by eye if it looks clear and clean then it is probalby drinkable At least I am planning to use water from swomp lakes hags even though it can contain much iron and from small streams in hills which probalby have started from springs I would not suggest to use water from flatland man made didges wider and slower rivers and bigger lakes with dirty water as in the picture A local competitor 2008 08 28 Having tramped hundreds of kilometers on the terrain this summer while preparing the race I suggest you use my advise Indeed pollution is not a problem in the natural park The problem is standing water Most of the naturally occuring water you will encounter during the race is standing water that you will not want to drink While in Northern Estonia some bog pools have crisp clear water here in South Estonia bogs have actually very few bog pools and these are often grown in The main bodies of water you will encounter

    this rule at all controls We hope to see the same 100 compliance rate the WRC However recognizing that there will be teams to whom this rule is new we would like to give some simple recommendations Considering that there will be 360 teams with 800 participants it is possible that after the start small queues may form at the nearest controls Make sure that your teammates are nearby when

    the same time we ask teams to submit their route plan indicating their intended course This is not our local invention Route plans are a rather common requirement at international rogaines For example route plans were required at the 2007 Australian Rogaining Championships and 2005 North American Rogaining Championships just to give some concrete examples Route plans serve some purpose Firstly in case of a team missing the organizers have at least a rough idea in which corner of the terrain to start searching We hope this will not be necessary Secondly we will get some idea which water stations will be most visited in order to supply more water during the event if necessary Of course we realize quite well that intented plans will seldom be 100 fulfilled and quite often teams adjust or have to adjust their plans during the event But this does not render route plans useless After the race it could be quite interesting to compare the route plans with the actual routes to see how optimistic teams were about their performance Finally I shall assure you that the organizers are bound to comply with the IRF rule C12 which stipulates that during the event

    not be warm If you continue with the wet clothes consider that nighttime temperatures may be low and you will face the risk of hypothermia The course is planned so that crossing any lakes by swimming will not give any advantage There are no major rivers on the competition terrain However there are some streams and a number of ditches Some of the ditches are narrow and can be easily crossed while others are wide and difficult to cross Do not jump into a wide ditch The bottom of the ditch may be muddy and you may be in a real danger Look for trees fallen over the ditch or beaver dams The main reason why some of the ditches are wide and filled with water is that beavers are active in this area At the same time beaver activity always means that there will be fallen trees that s what beavers do and beaver dams nearby As the main rule wider is the ditch closer is the beaver dam Nettles growing over the ditch often a good indication of a beaver dam Some of the beaver dams near controls have been mapped but it has not been possible to
