1 Orienteering The only sport where the weaker can beat the stronger

2 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.

3 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”.

4 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.

5 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.

6 “Punching” may be done electronically, or using a punch hanging from the control flag.

7 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
