Orienteering

What is it?

Orienteering is an adventurous outdoor sport! It provides a workout for the body and the mind. The aim of the game is to find points marked on a map and choose the best route to complete the course in the fastest time. It can take place anywhere, so you might find yourself in the woods, open countryside, parks or college/university campuses!
