New to Orienteering? “The aim is to navigate between checkpoints or controls marked on a special orienteering map. There is no set route so the skill and fun come from trying to find the best way to go. In competitive orienteering, the challenge is to complete the course in the quickest time.” For more info and up to date news please visit the British Orienteering website .
Beginners are always welcome! There’s loads of info available to help you make a start, and always someone willing to help if you come along to an event.
