What is the Park World Tour?

It started as a wild idea. A World Cup in park orienteering. A competition that would bring the orienteers into the cities, in front of the people and the crowds.

One year after the premiere in June 1996, the Park World Tour attracted 5,000 spectators. Dozens of TV companies covered the series. The cash prizes amounted to more than half a million Swedish kronor. The world’s best orienteers competed in famous European cities like Budapest and Venice.

Now, interested organisers are queuing up for their turn. The newcomer has grown, through youth cups and national championships. In 2001, a World Championships race on sprint distance was added to the orienteering schedule.

The Park World Tour contributes to spreading the sport all over the globe, with our ultimate goal - inclusion in the Olympic Games - in sight.

Visit the PWT website for information/results from the previous events.

The last time the event was held in Scotland was 1999, see the results and photos.
