In English - how it works

Hittaut starts on April 1st and runs up until November 5th.

We have placed a lot of checkpoints all around Alingsås. The idea is to find the checkpoints with the help of the map and/or GPS. You can use your cell-phone and the webmap or a physical map that you get for free.


THE MAP AND CHECKPOINTS

On the map there are 125 numbered checkpoints with color-codes explaining the difficulty.

  • Green = very easy (accessible with bike, pram or wheelchair)

  • Yellow = easy

  • Red = medium

  • Black = difficult

Some of the checkpoints are placed out from May 1st, June 1st and August 1st, while some are taken away at August 10th. These are marked on the map and on the checkpoint description. There are even six secret checkpoints that will not be published until September 17th.

At every checkpoint there is a one meter high "hittaut"-pole.

On the pole there are Hittaut-decals, the checkpoint-number and the code. Note the code (one letter) and register it on the homepage. There are also reflexes on the pole, so you will be able to find your checkpoint even in he dark.

You can download the map in your cell-phone or pick up a free paper map.

REGISTER YOUR CHECKPOINTS ONLINE

When you have found your first checkpoint, or even before you start, you can register here on orientering.se/hittaut/alingsas.

Every checkpoint you register (with the letter-code) on the homepage, becomes a lottery ticket and you can win prizes.

It's valuable for the project that you register, since both we and our sponsors whant to know how many checkpoint finders we'll be.
