What is Orienteering?

Orienteering is a sport that engages both body and mind, at any age. A competition is intended to test navigational skills, concentration, and running ability. The goal of orienteering is to use a map and compass to find controls listed on the map.

The objective is to follow the fastest route between controls. The fastest is not always the shortest route, and can depend heavily on route choice.
