Orienteering

What is Orienteering?

Do you love being outdoors? Orienteering is about finding your way using a map and a compass to move around from one point to another as quickly as you can. It is done outside, usually in woods or parks, where you walk, jog or run across different terrain, like hills and paths. Did you know London has more green space than anywhere else in the country? Pretty great isn’t it! Orienteering could be a great way for you and your friends to explore London whilst having a work out too.

What are the benefits?

  • You can learn new skills, like using a compass and reading a map
  • Great excuse to be outdoors and explore new parts of London
  • Improve making decision whilst being on the move
  • A social sport – you can do it on your own or with other people

What will I need?

Normal sportswear that you can easily move around in and isn’t really heavy. Old clothes might be better as orienteering can get a bit dirty! Some events or clubs might ask you to bring your own compass too.
