Remember you can just turn up to an event and give it a go as a non-club member.
Orienteering is a challenging outdoor adventure sport that exercises both the mind and body. The aim is to navigate (on foot or mountain bike) between control points marked on a unique, highly detailed Orienteering map while deciding the best route to complete the course in the quickest time. Orienteering can either be a highly competitive individual sport or, when family or friends do a course together, a totally recreational activity. It is suitable for all ages, fitness and experience levels.No special equipment is needed to start with, just comfortable outdoor clothing and footwear. Compasses are not necessary for beginners and most people soon master the map reading skills.
At Orienteering events there is usually 3-6 courses to choose from that take between 20 and 120 minutes to complete. Easy courses are suitable for children or beginners, are no more than 2 km long and mainly on tracks. The more difficult and technical courses can be up to 13 km in length and are designed for fit and experienced athletes. Orienteering is done all year round and events are hardly ever cancelled.
Competitors range from 8 years old to 70+. To reach the top, you need to be extremely fit and a first class map reader and navigator; but most regular orienteers do it because they enjoy the challenge, the exercise, the fresh air and the opportunity to visit new places.
Shorts and T-shirt are OK for parkland events, but most orienteers wear full body cover for forest and farmland venues.
After finishing (or giving up in disgust, if that’s the way it went!) ALWAYS check in with the Finish official, so we know you’re not lost in the forest!
