Estonians Triumph in the 16th European Rogaining Championships

The 16th European Rogaining Championships held in Tukums and Engure municipalities,
Latvia, closed on 23 August. Estonian and Russian teams came out as winners in OPEN
classes: Estonian team La sportiva, Timmo Tammemäe and Sander Linnus, scored 457 points
out of 485 possible and became the winners in men’s class. They are also absolute winners
of the Championships. Russian team Team Blizzard, Natalia Zimina, Igor Manzhay and Oleg
Kalinin, are the winners among mixed teams in OPEN class, while Estonian team 1/2 16E,
Piibe Tammemäe and Hannula-Katrin Pandis, is the winning team in women’s OPEN class.
Ukrainian and Latvian teams were among the winners in other classes.
Results have been published and are available here.
Out of nearly 750 competitors from 19 countries initially entered for the competition, only
518 from 11 countries could make it to the start. Anyway, we have this year’s European
Rogaining champions and medal winners in all gender and age classes. Congratulations to
the winners!
It is a pity that the global political and epidemiological situation has an impact on so many
things and puts constrains to high-level international sports events. Though the organising
was somewhat harder than usual due to the need to obtain permissions and follow all health
safety precautions, it was you, our devoted participants, who had to face most challenges. If
not for you and your dedication, the Championships would not happen. We hope that the
experience was worth all the efforts and you enjoyed every single minute spent in our tricky
forests! Thank you everybody who came, who wished to come and who sympathized with
We sincerely hope that we all meet next year in Estonia, at the 17th European Rogaining
