Compare urban orienteering with running and sprint orienteering

Urban orienteering is a longer form of sprint orienteering that takes place in city environments. Orienteering is different from running in that you choose your own route to the next checkpoint.

Good to know

Norrsken Sthlm Urban-O series - COVID-19 precaution and ways to learn orienteering

Orienteering is probably one of the most corona-safe outdoor sports! We provide a personal start time, so there would be no crowding anywhere in the race. The race is limited to 50 people, so please register ASAP!

We provide coaching on site. You can also try and practice urban orienteering with Metrunner!

NOTE: in case of restrictions on public events on the event date – the affected stage(s) will be converted to an activity with free start time over the whole day. Everything will then be self-service with no race officials on-site.
