Orienteering in China is still a young sport. 83% of active orienteers in China are university students aged 18-29 years (Liu 2020). However, orienteering has no upper age limit. If you feel fit for 8 days orienteering you are welcome! If the program is too tough for you, you can also do your own rest day.
Age classes (separate Women's and Men's classes): M / W -16, -18, 21A, 21E (Elite). Open class.
