For those fit, fun and forever young, orienteering is one of those challenging sports that requires competitors to make split-second navigating decisions. Competitors are timed as they run from checkpoint to checkpoint in in as little time as possible with the help of a compass. It’s a great way to combine map-reading skills, navigational expertise and mental and physical strength.
