How do I get started?
The best way to try orienteering is to come out to a local event and get involved. Newcomers are always welcome. Just show up and dress for the weather, including good footwear ( e.g runners, trail or hiking shoes).
No previous experience or special equipment necessary.
Most events have beginner's clinics , and refresher activities. Events are great for both individuals and families, for people out for recreation, or those looking for some challenge.
If you don't have a club in your area but you think it is something that you would like to try please contact us. We would like to support communities to develop their own programs.
Watch these videos which explains how to start. The only difference is that we don’t need you to write down the control codes, just simple find the control flags. During Covid 19 restrictions we are not using SI electronic punching system.
