Somersault Finnish Championships

Once again, children are doing somersaults with competition in mind. The Finnish championship prizes are awarded already for the 19th time. The playful race takes place on a track built for specifically somersaults, and it contains a variety of obstacles. Somersaults can be made with free style. The competition is filled with wild somersaults fast competitors!
The track lengths: children under 9 years 15 m and over 9 years 30 m.

Mixed groups: under 5 year olds, 5-6 year olds, 7-8 year olds

Different groups for girls and boys: 9-10 year olds, 11 to 14 year olds, over 14 year olds.

The results are based on time and the purity of the performance, meaning the number of somersaults made. Three best of each group will be rewarded. Before the race performance it is possible to practice on the track.

Registration for the contest happens on the spot. Winners will be awarded at the park’s stage at 16.00. Participation is free of charge.

Welcome to the fun competition!
