Train for APOC

Today, six of our APOC team members joined a technical training organized by KK Yeung, the Ex-Hong Kong Champion from HKOXCC. It's a well-set course with 5.5km length and 205m climbing in Rotary Park, Tai Mo Shan. Map details showing the control feature within the circle are missing out, which makes the course more challenging.

The first part is mostly grassland with quite a lot of rock details. At the second part we entered the forest containing some thickets. We got to be very careful because those route choices are really interesting! Despite the hot weather, we enjoyed running every single legs. After punching all of the 21 controls, we even wanted to do more of it.

High quality trainings are essential for good results. Having this kind of technical trainings, combining with well planned physical trainings, we are all with great confidence to ROCK the APOC!

Leung & Yip were discussing about the route choices afterward.

Man Chi Kin - The King of 100M-Orienteering

On 1/5, our club member - Man won the 100M-Orienteering Championships (or called Orient-Show) again. He is the always-winner of this discipline in the All-China Orienteering Championships and other elite races in China.

The race he has just won in Hong Kong is not exciting enough. Here is a more exciting one from the Chinese National Orienteering Championships 2007 in Yunnan. Let's see how did he catch up at the last control. Enjoy the video!

Who we are?

There is a boys-only secondary school on the Hong Kong Island. In the school, there are some boys who fell in love with orienteering. They love running around the hills with a map. When they find a control flag in white and orange color, they get smiles in their hearts. It is easier to get smiles on their faces - simply when they are together.

However, when they leave the school, they are separated. They need a force to get them together and keep them smiling. After months of planning and meetings, they set up the Hong Kong Island Orienteering Force to make it.
