WHAT IS ORIENTEERING ?
Orienteering is an outdoor adventure activity, which involves finding your way around a course in the terrain using a detailed map and some common sense.
Participants leave the starting point at regular intervals and must find their way to several checkpoints, set-out at various features in the area and return to the finish, after visiting each checkpoint. Much like a treasure hunt. The competitor with the shortest elapsed time on each course, is declared the winner.
The activity can be enjoyed by adults and children - old and young - fit or unfit. As you set your own pace walking or running - it is ideal recreation for individuals or groups. Families are welcome to try Orienteering, going round the course together.
The length of an Orienteering course varies from 1 km with six to ten controls for beginners, up to about 10 km for the more adventurous. The challenge is yours !.
