The last day of competition at the IBU YJWCH in Raubichi were the hardest for the athletes. Unlike the OECH in Otepää, where the final day brought a perfect weather with the sun and clear skies, the conditions in Raubichi made for a lot of problems for the teams, the OC, and fans. The light rain which started before the first relay barely stopped during the competition, making tough track conditions harder and snow cover thinner. The French team of Chloe Chevalier, Julia Simon and Lena Arnaud needed just 53:27.3 and 6 spare rounds to claim the first victory for their country in the junior women's relay. In the afternoon, Russia claimed the last Gold medal of these Championships with their team of Aleksandr Dediukhin, Viktor Tretiakov, Eduard Latypov and Alexander Povarnitsyn, using just four spare rounds to confidently won the junior men's relay in 1:19:59.7.
