Metvigator

Metvigator is a Forest x City long distance orienteering concept. The race focuses on trail running and simple orienteering technique. It’s suitable not only for seasoned orienteers but also for distance runners who want to try orienteering. The race is held on the Sunday before the World Cup Finals in Guangdong, China so you can combine your trip with this event. There are two distances: 30km and 15km, and you can join alone or as a team of two people.
