Cancellation of Asian Trail Orienteering Championships 2019

In view of recent social and political situation and the resulting uncertainties, Orienteering Association of Hong Kong has reluctantly made the decision that the Asian Trail Orienteering Championships 2019, originally scheduled from 29 November to 3 December 2019 in Hong Kong, will be cancelled.

As the situation in Hong Kong has not improved and the disturbance is spreading to different communities, it has now become difficult for us, the organiser, to ensure smooth transport between the championship accommodation and competition arenas. Also, we do not have the confidence that the competition areas would not be closed to public with very short notice. In addition, the safety of movement of the competitors in the territory is our concern.

Athletes and Team Officials will receive a full refund of Entry and Accreditation Fees. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused by the cancellation of the event and are looking forward to seeing you all at the World Trail Orienteering Championships 2020.

For enquiries concerning the arrangements and refund procedures, please do not hesitate to send an email to

Orienteering Association of Hong Kong
