If you're wondering how to get to ERC2023 and where to stay, here's something for you.

“Getting to Turku is a piece of cake. The city has an airport, harbour, bus depot, and three railway stations, so you’re bound to find an option that’s just right for you.”

We will arrange bus transportation to the competition center on Saturday morning, September 9, 2023 from Turku harbor, the main bus and railway stations, and the city center. Likewise, bus transportation from the competition centers back to Turku on Sunday after the race is arranged. The cost of the different transport options is provided in the registration system. The exact schedule for the bus transportation will be published closer to the competition.

Camping overnight in the competition center is possible both before (Fri-Sat) and after (Sun-Mon) the race. Hard floor accommodation before the race (Fri-Sat) is possible in Riihi where banquet and prize-giving ceremony occur. Staying overnight in Turku is something we can also warmly recommend. Additionally we’ve started to gather information of possible accommodation providers and the list is published soon on our website. Finally, several accommodation companies can be found also via different search engines, travel agencies and travel companies.

Tips for travelling and accommodation can be found also from


27.4.2023   The present entry fee period ends by April 30, those of you who have not yet enrolled, you should all act now! Less than 4 days to enter with the current entry fee.


Where are the Swedes . and Norwegians . ? No enrollments have come from those neighbors. This is why our organization decided to create an extra temptation for those particular Scandinavians: the first two Swedes and Norwegians to register will get a 50% discount off the entry fee. Kom igen Svenska och Norska!
