What is orienteering?
Using map skills participants navigate to points called controls to complete a set course. There are many different levels of difficulty available from string and basic courses to challenge courses over a greater distance. Participants may take part individually or in small groups, and it can be run as a competition.
The objective is to complete the course in the quickest time.
