What is Orienteering?

Orienteering is an organized sport for individuals, navigating a course by hiking or running to find your way through the trees and fields. Map Reading, Navigation and Route Choice are the key. Orienteering is a sport for everyone, regardless of age or experience. At advanced levels it is very competitive. Others, while learning, often go in small groups. It is done at your pace, whether you run or walk it's about the satisfaction of finding your own way.
