Klaipėda Challenge – urban adventure race on the Baltic seaside



Navigation with maps in Klaipeda city and parks. No special navigation skills are required, but knowing basics will help a lot! Orienteering club “O! Klaipėda” will help you improve orienteering skills, please try out “Orienteering thursdays” in Klaipėda!


Crawl under a net, climb a wall, navigate through tire maze, – those are a few samples of what you could expect in the obstacle part of the course.


Biking allows to cover longer distances and reach more remote areas from the city centre.Expect various types of navigation including following clues.


You will get wet during the race! Please remember that Klaipeda is a port city near the Baltic sea. You are not made of sugar, so won’t melt! Discipline partners Vandens sup’ynės and unconventional Finnfoam boards are waiting for you!


Black course racers are expected to know rope techniques like rappelling and ziplining. For others it will be a great adventure with no preparation needed. Our ropes partners will ensure the safety and quality of all rope disciplines.

Puzzles / Fun tasks
