Orienteering – a sport for all!
It takes place anywhere from forests and countryside to urban parks, school playgrounds and city centres. It doesn’t matter how young, old or fit you are , as you can run, walk or jog the course and progress at your own pace.
The aim is to navigate your way between control points on marked on a special orienteering map and decide the best route to complete the course in the quickest time. You can choose a course that suits your ability as an individual or you can take part as a family.
All you need to get started is a pair of trainers and comfortable sports clothes. We’ll help you do the rest!
