About Petzl HK Night City-O League


City Orienteering

City-orienteering is a common type of score orienteering which involves a large competition area. Therefore, use of public transport is usually allowed, adding additional challenge in route planning as compared to traditional score orienteering. In a city-orienteering race, runners usually compete in teams. Good team work together with good tactic are important for scoring high marks.
