What is Orienteering?

Orienteering involves using a map and a compass to find a series of checkpoints. An orange and white marker (called a “control”) is located at each checkpoint, along with a card-punching device or an electronic timing unit. At most events, the objective is to visit all of the controls, in the specified order, in the fastest time.

Orienteering is a great sport because:

  • It is easy to learn and requires no special equipment to get started.
  • It can be enjoyed as a walk in the outdoors or as a competitive sport.
  • Courses of varying length and difficulty are offered so that anyone can compete, regardless of age or experience. This makes it a good sport for families.
  • For serious competitors, the sport is challenging both physically and mentally. Elite competitors have to run quickly while navigating through complex terrain.
