Event descriptionThe Vienna O Challenge is Austria's premier international orienteering event. The Sprint Weekend consists of 3 individual sprint competitions and a mixed sprint relay. An open training is offered the day before the first stage. 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 4 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 30 countries make it a truly international meeting. 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! Elite runner: "Really top weekend. Would 10/10 recommend for sprint fans."
