Event descriptionThe aim of the Vienna Orienteering Challenge (VOC) is to offer a high-quality sprint orienteering event that is attractive for beginners, recreational and competitive athletes. VOC is a weekend event with 3+1 stages in Vienna within 48 hours (Friday evening - Sunday afternoon). The sprint orienteering format attracts international participants, world-class athletes and Austrian orienteers. The total time of all 3 sprint races combined counts for the overall ranking. The Vienna Sprint Relay concludes the sprint weekend. In the first 2 editions many up-and-coming and successful elite orienteers used the weekend to improve and fine-tune their sprint skills. Participants from more than 20 countries make it a truly international meeting. VOC is an EcoEvent and all venues easy to reach by public transport. No need for a car during the weekend.

High quality courses in different urban terrains, all accessible by public transport, smooth organisation, and a warm atmosphere with an international flavour. Thanks for this amazing event! Elite: "Really top weekend. Would 10/10 recommend for sprint fans."
