China 3 Day Event 1995: Guangzhou

(Reproduced from Lokation 105, January 1996.) Advertised as the “first multi-day international event hosted by the Chinese Orienteering Committee” this event proved just too convenient to miss for many of those attending APOC in Hong Kong. It was a short train, bus or plane journey from Hong Kong for most to get to the luxury hotel accommodation in Guangzhou. For Helen Teece and me it was a slightly longer train journey (starting from London and taking in the Channel Tunnel, Moscow, Ulan Bator and Beijing, and taking twelve days).
