On Thursday, 3 August, all those interested are welcome to come out to witness and share the experience of the Admiral Pitka Recon Challenge.
From 15:00 to 17:00, the competition teams will traverse the obstacle course that is set up in Lauri Quarry at Väljaküla, Pärnumaa.
As well, everyone is invited to watch the final run and competition finish on 4 August from 9:00 to 15:00 at the Surju School Stadium in Pärnu County.
The Admiral Pitka Recon Challenge is an international military sports competition that takes place every year in a different region of Estonia in order to reduce the home field advantage of Estonian teams. The purpose of the competition is to measure the participants' level of training, weaponry / equipment and definitely also morale under conditions that are as close to reality as possible.
Altogether, there are 28 teams in the competition this year, 10 of them coming from abroad. Among the guests from outside of Estonia, there are teams representing Bosnia and Herzegovina, Lithuania, Latvia, Poland, Sweden, Finland, Great Britain, Denmark, Hungary and the United States.
