ABOUT ORIENTEERING

Orienteering

Orienteering is similar to a treasure hunt in which you find checkpoints using a given map and a compass. Originated in Sweden and immensely popular in Europe, it has a long history in Hong Kong and is rapidly growing in China.

MIND SPORT

Known as a “mind sport”, orienteering exercises both the brain and the body, making it a perfect strategic, educational and exciting game. It is suitable for all ages and physical fitness levels.

VARIATIONS

Variations are numerous. It can be...

- individually, in pairs or in groups;
- on foot, ski, bike, canoe, in a wheelchair (known as trail orienteering);
- during the day, at night or around-the-clock (called “Rogaine”, it typically lasts for 24 hours);
- in the countryside, in the city, a soccer pitch or even in a classroom! 

INTERNATIONal RACES

At the highest competitive level, top athletes around the world compete in the annual World Orienteering Championships. The International Orienteering Association (IOF, www.orienteering.org) is the governing body of this interesting sport.
