Event descriptionMETVIGATOR is a Forest x City long distance orienteering concept. The race focuses on trail running and simple orienteering technique. It's suitable not only for seasoned orienteers but also for distance runners who want to try orienteering. The race is held on the Sunday before the World Cup Finals in Guangdong, China so you can combine your trip with this event. There are two distances: 30km and 15km, and you can join alone or as a team of two people. Welcome to Hong Kong!
Terrain descriptionHong Kong has steep slopes, many mountains and highly runnable trails. Forests are dense but some passable patches exist.
Training possibilitiesWe can arrange during the week following METVIGATOR. Please contact info@metoc.com.hk to arrange.
Holiday activities,nature,hiking etc.There are a lot of hiking opportunities in Hong Kong. We recommend especially the areas around Sai Kung and Tsuen Wan, as well as Lantau Island. You can also learn more about Hong Kong's history as a British colony through the historical buildings in the city. If you are hiking, you'll also find a lot of old villages and (in some areas) World War II military objects.
