Orienteering, in the classical sense, is “cross-country running using a map and a compass.” Often called “cunning running” or “adventure running”, this is a thinking sport where you have to navigate a preset course of “control” locations in a park or forest using only your map, compass and your wits.
Orienteering is a fun and educational sport. We offer school programs and orienteering events for schools at various levels and coaching workshops for teachers and group leaders.
If you are planning a company outing this summer, consider orienteering for a unique and exciting alternative to typical corporate excursions. Not enough time to get outdoors? We can bring orienteering into your office as well.
