Come and try orienteering, a navigation sport suitable for 8-80+ year-olds.
Orienteering combines a love of the outdoors with the challenge of finding your way with a map and compass. Orienteering caters to all fitness levels – from casual walker to the elite athlete. You can participate individually or in a group.
Orienteering is an enjoyable outdoor family activity, where kids can lead their parents on an ‘adventure’.
Don’t worry if you have never read a map or used a compass – the basic skills are easily learnt and an experienced orienteer will be on hand to assist.
There will be a number of courses to choose from, 1 km – 6 km, for beginner and young children to superfit adults.
You can start anytime between 9:30am and 11:00am and most participants will complete the course within an hour.
