Discover Orienteering

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.
