About the Event
“It’s not just about racing FAST, it’s about racing RIGHT” -
“Orienteering is one of the prime disciplines in adventure racing. It’s a sport that requires navigational skills using a map and compass to navigate from point to point in diverse and usually unfamiliar terrain whilst moving at speed. Participants are given a topographical map, usually a specially prepared orienteering map, which they use to find control points.”
And did you know there is an ORIENTEERING WORLD CUP and there are various types of orienteering, Foot-O, MTB-O, Ski-O, Trail-O, Kayak-O, Rogaining, and more..
Foot Orienteering is an endurance sport that involves a huge mental element. There is no marked route – the orienteer must navigate with the provided map and compass while running. The map gives detailed information on the terrain such as hills, ground surface, obstacles, etc, and the sequence of the Control Points.
We are inviting you to experience this sport. Compass is not required; no prior experience is required. Run, jog, or walk as you navigate your route while collecting checkpoints on the course and learn this new sport.
