What is Orienteering?
Orienteering is a navigation sport. Participants use a specially created, highly detailed topographic map to select routes through unfamiliar terrain and visit control points in sequence. Participants can go as individuals or teams. The event is timed with staggered starts, so the fastest time wins. Courses also can be enjoyed as a walk in the woods, with difficulty levels from beginner to expert offered at most events. more
