Welcome to Nanhai District, Foshan City, Guangdong Province, China!

IOF and the Chinese Radio Sports and Orienteering Association welcomes you to follow the Orienteering World Cup Final with Middle, Sprint Relay and Sprint competitions. All 3 competitions will be covered with full TV broadcast on Web-TV. Read this page to warm up and then follow the competitions by selecting the competition day in the tabs above.

Overview

The first World Cup round is also European Championships and fully designated for the sprint discipline. The schedule follows the championship schedule; sprint, sprint relay and knock-out sprint.

Neuchâtel is a middle-sized town with roots from the Kingdom of Burgundy before it became a part of the Roman empire. The sprint map of the area around the castle and the old town certainly proves the old roots. Neuchâtel is situated in western parts of Switzerland and is part of the French speaking part of the country. The altitude is, with Swiss measures, moderate which in May means that it is a blooming period.

The races will be intense and solid map reading skills will be needed to concur the terrain. Expect route choice challenges with several parameters to care for.
In parallel to the World Cup, the organizer is offering a 5 days public event. We can expect good numbers of spectators and fans.

LIVE Services

The World Cup round will be covered with full live services and TV Broadcasts from each competition. All live services are found at the live orienteering pages. TV Broadcasts will be available on live orienteering in English commentary at a cost of 6 EUR per competition.
