Try something new, and do something different this weekend

Orienteering is an outdoor sport that involves participants following a course marked on a map and finding their way to a series of checkpoints.  It is up to participants to decide which way to go, which is all part of the fun and sets it apart from just a walk or run. 

Orienteering is very well placed to offer individual or family-friendly adventurous challenges for all ages and abilities.  From courses with permanent markers to discover, to virtual courses that you can complete with your smartphone or GPS watch, there has never been a better time to start your next outdoor adventure with orienteering. 

There are over 500 Permanent and Virtual Orienteering Courses across the UK so there is lots to choose from.  Download your map and Go Orienteering!
