On the map Spiegelsberge above the animal park Halberstadt the relay competitions took place at the end of the Junior European Cup. On a relatively small map section it was necessary to correctly assign the elevation and the stone objects, to keep the speed high in the badly runnable sections and to punch the right posts.
The German relay teams started strong with Jule Roßner (OK Leipzig) and Anselm Reichenbach (SSV Planeta Radebeul). The following German runners did not manage to keep the positions 2 and 6. In the overall classification of all relays the 9th place for the men and the 15th place for the women could be recorded at the end.
At the top of the field in the women's race Finland ran in ahead of Switzerland and Sweden. In the men's race, France won ahead of Switzerland and Sweden after the first teams to enter, Czech Republic 1 and France 2, were disqualified after a miscue.
Around Regenstein Castle, an often fast terrain with some steep climbs and various rock and stone control points awaited the juniors for the European Cup over the long distance. On top of the podium were Salla Isoherranen (D18, Finland), Lucie Semikova (D20, Czech Republic), Wilmer Selin (H18, Sweden) and Pascal Schärer (H20, Switzerland). The German-Swiss Tobias Nagel ran with rank 12 in the H18 the best placement for Germany.
