Orienteering is a challenging outdoor adventure sport that exercises both the mind and the body. The aim is to navigate in sequence between control points marked on a unique orienteering map and decide the best route to complete the course in the quickest time. It does not matter how young, old or fit you are, as you can run, walk or jog the course and progress at your own pace.
Orienteering can take place anywhere from remote forest and countryside to urban parks and school playgrounds. The most challenging orienteering takes place in areas, which has demanding terrain and few paths.

New Community Orienteering
‘Community Orienteering’ or ‘Community O’ provides weekly training and activities from a fixed location that will allow for skill development at a social and motivating level for people of all ages and abilities. Community O also includes local events and competitions that can provide a stepping stone into mainstream orienteering events. Community O aims to attract a broad range of participants from a wide demographic. The activities are accessible to all but are particularly popular with family groups.
