Sports tutors’ events

CampusSport’s sports tutors organize a stairway walk Tue 19 Nov 2019 and a series of mindfulness sessions between 25 Nov and 14 Dec 2019. Sports tutors’ events are free. No need to enroll in advance. You don’t need to be a CampusSport member in order to participate – all the students and staff members of the universities in Turku are welcome to join in. Welcome!

Stairway walk Tue 19 Nov
During the tour we will climb many of the stairs in the city center area. Stairs offer a great view over the city – and one step up the stairs is equivalent to ten steps on flat ground so we’ll great exercise at the same time. The tour is organized on Tue 19 November, starting at 6pm. The meeting point will be in front of the cathedral (Tuomiokirkko) near the river. The route will go through Vartiovuori, Samppalinna’s summer theatre, and Turku art museum. The tour will end at the cathedral as well. Participants will get a Campussport reflector, so that we can enjoy the tour safely as the evening’s are quite dark this time of year. The tour will last for approximately an hour. The sports tutors will have a CampusSport sign with them so that you’ll be able to recognize them. More information:
