Orienteering is an exciting and challenging outdoor sport that exercises mind and body.
The aim is to navigate between control points marked on an orienteering map.
In competitive orienteering the challenge is to complete the course in the quickest time choosing your own best route.
How It Works
If you like exploring new places, getting off the beaten track, enjoy looking at maps or simply want to add variety to a run or walk then orienteering could be for you.
It doesn’t matter how young, old or fit you are, as you can choose a course to suit you and go at your own pace.
Plan the route which you think enables you to finish as quickly as possible and navigate, in sequence, between the markers (controls) using our bespoke orienteering map
You’ll develop skills of map reading, terrain observation and distance estimation and, above all, you’ll get to improve your fitness and enjoy the fresh air.
Fun For Everyone
Orienteering is a self-led activity and open to all ages, although prior knowledge of orienteering or map reading is an advantage.
Orienteering can be done individually, in pairs, as a family and it also works brilliantly for a group activity – the level of competitiveness is up to you!
Our course is mapped and designed in association with Saxons Orienteering Club. For more information about orienteering in Kent visit www.saxons-oc.org
