Notice concerning the cancellation of “MSF Orienteering Competition 2018 – On Track to Save”

04-03-2018
“MSF Orienteering Competition 2018 – On Track to Save” was scheduled to be held today (March 4), with participants of the first category starting at 9 a.m.. The Hong Kong Observatory issued the Thunderstorm Warning at 8:40 a.m, and MSF-Hong Kong had to postpone the competition twice. At around 10 a.m., the Hong Kong Observatory extended the Thunderstorm Warning till 12:45 p.m.. The entire event involved more than 4,500 participants, and the competition of each category would last for 2.5 hours. In order to ensure that all participants could finish the race before dark, participants of the first category had to start at 11 a.m. the latest. In addition, as suggested by the Hong Kong Observatory, when Thunderstorm Warning is issued, one should not stand on hill tops. Considering that some of the control points of the orienteering competition this year are located on the hill tops, MSF-Hong Kong eventually decided to cancel the competition for the safety of the participants. MSF-Hong Kong regrets that the MSF Orienteering Competition 2018 had to be cancelled. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused. We fully understand that our participants would feel disappointed, and will announce all follow-up arrangements as soon as possible. We deeply appreciate all the participants, volunteers as well as sponsoring and supporting organisations.
