Pirkka Jogging is held annually on the first Sunday of October and is suitable for runners, joggers and walkers alike. The main part of the route follows forest paths and sandy roads from Valkeakoski to Tampere, partly along the routes of the Birgitta Trail. The diverse terrain offers additional challenge to marathoners, whereas the beautiful scenery will for sure please those who like to take it more slowly. In the recent years there has been nearly 2000 participants.
There is also a 16 km “Vuoreskieppi” which takes place in the beautiful neighbourhood of Vuores and joins the original Pirkka Jogging route for the last 8 km.
