Competitive Autostop is a (new) form of the orienteering sport, combining hiking, orienteering and exploration with autostop as a means of transport. Competitions and varying expeditions are organized on a regular base by clubs in Russia, Lithuania, Ukraine and Germany. Elements of sport orienteering & navigation in (un)known territory off and on the road are an inherent part in such competitions, establishing a more adventurous form of autostop.

Next to that, research and lectures are conducted regarding a broad range of topics, including e.g. training for giving first-aid on the road, survival training in specific conditions, perfecting night hitchhiking or strategical autostop. In 2014, the second qualification round for the World Championships is planned, covering a route through all of Europe (~16 days). While competitive autostop is mainly based in Russia, Ukraine and the Baltics, there are attempts to establish competitive autostop in Western Europe. A first German club has been founded in November 2011.
