Event descriptionThe Vienna O Challenge is Austria's most fun orienteering event, made for the next generation and open for everyone who loves orienteering. Our priority is to provide a high-level event for elite, junior and youth runners. 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 3 editions many up-and-coming and successful elite orienteers used the weekend to improve and fine-tune their sprint skills ahead of important competitions. Participants from more than 25 countries make it a truly international meeting. VOC is an environmentally-friendly event and all venues easy to access by public transport. Feedback: "Three days of gourmet orienteering for sprint aficionados. 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!
