Venla Relay

The Venla Relay is the relay race held for women which precedes Jukola, and is held during the Saturday afternoon prior to the men’s race.

Like Jukola, the name Venla is taken from the Finnish novel, Seven Brothers, and was the name of the main female character in that Finnish classic.

The race has 4 legs and is usually contested by well over 1000 runners from all over the world.
