The only sport where the weaker can beat the stronger
Orienteering was originally part of military training.In the early 1900’s civillians in Scandinavia started this as a sport.Now it is a widely practiced sport all over the world.
Physical fitness is not the only element: You need to use your brain!
There is no age limit to this sport.
The orienteer finds his/her way using the compass and reading the details marked on the map.
The map contains a series of “control points”. The competitor must visit these control points in the given order, racing against time.
At each control point, there is the orange and white “control flag” showing that you came to the correct point.
You “punch” at the control point to show you came here.
