Orienteering is the sport of navigating with map and compass over a given course in the shortest time. It is sometimes described as 'Cunning Running', or the 'Thought Sport'.
You do not need to be a fit athlete, nor a superb navigator to enjoy it. You can walk, jog, or run around courses varying from the very simple, where all controls are on paths, to courses where you need to navigate very carefully across long stretches of pathless moor or forest.
You can find out more about orienteering from our information page and some of the excellent web pages featured on our links page.
