Park Orienteering is a kind of Sprint Orienteering which requires runners to have good route choice and physical fitness to excel. In a park orienteering competition, runners will be given a map with checkpoint location. They can opt for any route choices based on the information provided on the map.
Y2Y is celebrating her 10th anniversary in 2018. To celebrate this important milestone, we have invited Germany timing system company SPORTident to be the title sponsor for our park orienteering tournament and doubled up the number of stages to 10.
