Date : 05 Jul 2019

Hangzhou, China, July 5, 2019: The 2019 Hangzhou City Orienteering Race to welcome the 19th Asian Games Hangzhou 2022 kicked off in Xixi National Wetland Park in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province with over 4,000 participants keen to explore the city. Originating from navigation training exercises for military officers, orienteering has developed into a group of sports that requires navigational skills using maps, a compass, physical endurance and teamwork to move from one point to another as quickly as possible in unfamiliar terrain. To improve the experience, the organisers this year also set up tasks related to events in the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games such as climbing, archery, shooting and cycling. The winners received a set of specially designed stamps for the 19th Asian Games. Initiated in 2017, the Hangzhou City Orienteering Race has gained immense popularity in the city and attracted many enterprises and social organisations. The race was held on June 16.
