Orienteering 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.
You must visit these control points in the given order, racing against time. Orienteering is an outdoor sport. You are given a map with a series of “control points”.
You find your way using the compass and reading the details marked on the map. The only aid allowed to help find your way is a compass.
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.
“Punching” may be done electronically, or using a punch hanging from the control flag.
Orienteering requires effective strategy and making rapid decisions. Physical fitness is not the only element: You need to use your brain! “What is the fastest route to the control?”fastest route
