Why Orienteering is an exciting and challenging outdoor sport that exercises mind and body. The aim is to navigate between control points marked on an orienteering map. In competitive orienteering the challenge is to complete the course in the quickest time choosing your own best route.
Regular participation in physical activity is associated with improved social skills, integration into peer groups and extending social networks for young people. It is also associated with reduced anxiety and improved self-esteem in young people… British Heart Foundation (2014)
Timing The course itself will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. Registration will take a couple of minutes and the walk to the start will take approximately 10 minutes.
