“Orienteering” is known as the sport for the thinking runner.
The objective of Orienteering is to navigate accurately around a course consisting of a series of points (controls), which are marked with flags, using specialized maps showing the exact location of each control. Competitors’ aim is to navigate the most efficient route from one control to another – on or off trail – and to find all the controls at the least time possible.
