Vekara-Varkauden’s very own world championship competition will be held with a competitive somersault. With the music of the park concert playing in the background, the Finnish championship prizes will be awarded for the 21st time. The playful competition will take place on a track with various obstacles built by the Varkauden Tarmo wrestling team. The length of the competition track is 15 m for the under 9-year-olds and 30 m for the over 9-year-olds.


Competition categories: mixed categories: under 5, 5-6, 7-8.

Girls and boys: 9-10 years, 11-14 years, over 14 years.

The result of the competition is decided by the time and the cleanliness of the performance (number of somersaults). The top three finishers in each category will be awarded a trophy. There will be an opportunity to practice on the track before the competition. The competition area will be closed to the public.

Registration for the race will take place on site. Weather permitting, the race will not take place in case of rain.
