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.

Petzl Hong Kong Night City-O League 2019

Y2Y presents, a 5-stage City-orienteering League supported and sponsored by Petzl brings you to run around Hong Kong this summer. In a team of 3, you will be navigating streets to find checkpoints in the city with the aid of a map within the 2 hours competition time. The team with highest score will win.

The Champion team of each stage will receive Petzl headlamps. Cash prize will be awarded to the overall winners! Act now to enjoy the fun!
