Caving is the recreational sport of exploring caves. Speleology is the scientific study of caves and the cave environment. The challenges of the sport depend on the cave being visited, but often include the negotiation of pitches, squeezes, and water. Climbing or crawling is often necessary, and ropes are used extensively.
Cycling is a means of transport, a form of recreation, and a sport. The bicycle carries riders across land, through tunnels, over bridges, or to a nearby town in the provinces of the Philippines. Cycling involves the riding of bicycles, unicycles, tricycles, quadricycles and other similar human powered vehicles (HPVs).
The marathon is a long-distance running event of 42.195 km (26 miles 385 yards) that can be run either as a road race or off-road (for example, on mountain trails).
Mountaineering is the sport, hobby or profession of walking, hiking, trekking and climbing up mountains for adventurism. It is also sometimes known as alpinism. It may be said to consist of three aspects: rock-craft, snow-craft and skiing, depending on whether the route chosen is over rock, snow or ice. All require great athletic and technical ability, and experience is also a very important part of the latter.
Orienteering is a running sport involving navigation with a map and compass. The traditional form (sometimes referred to as "Foot Orienteering" or "Foot-O") involves cross-country running, though other forms have evolved. The competition is a timed race in which individual participants use a special purpose map and a magnetic compass to navigate through diverse terrain (often wooded) and visit, in sequence, control points that are indicated on the map. The course of control points is kept a secret from competitors before the start, when they are provided with a detailed topographic map on which the course is marked. Competitors start at staggered intervals, are individually timed, and are expected to perform all navigation skills on their own. Standings are determined first by successful completion of the course, then by shortest time on course. Rules and principles of the sport are defined by the International Orienteering Federation.
