Event descriptionNight Hawk in Norway is a true orienteering experience. The history goes back to the 60's, and it was one of the biggest relays in the 70's, together with 10Mila and Jukola. Everyone in Norway participated, and only the toughest Swedes has finished it. Back then the Finns only heard the rumors of it. In August 2013 the relay returned; reimagined. SNO and Halden won it, making them the first legends of a new era. 8th - 9th August 2014 Night Hawk will be run by Women and Men, both young and old. Women run 3 night and 3 day legs. Men run 4 night and 4 day legs. All night legs starts on Friday 8th August 22:00, in one huge mass-start. The day legs are run as normal relay on 10th August, based on the results from the night legs. Women can have 3 to 6 runners and men can have 4 to 8 runners on each team.
