Orienteering(Forest)

Sport Overview

Orienteering is a sport that involves running through control points indicated on a specially-created map in as little time as possible with the help of a compass. It is a challenging sport that requires map-reading skills, navigation skills and both mental and physical strength. Forest orienteering takes place in a hilly area and is divided into middle-distance and long-distance events depending on the distance or time limit.
