An intelligent and fun sport. You have to find your way as fast as possible in a forest /park area, in your quest for control points. All you are allowed with is the map of the area where the control points are drawn and the traditional compass. No GPS technology is used, because in orienteering you have to trust your own decisions, rather than the ones of a software or of an electronic equipment.
Orienteering is a sport that combines both physical and a mental exercise, as one has to navigate with the help of a map and find certain control points in the terrain, making quick decisions while running. It is an outdoor sport, mostly organized in forests and parks, suitable for both genders and all ages.
It is a sport that can be practiced by both professionals and amateurs, which is little expensive and which enhances physical and mental health while promoting respect towards nature and greater care for the environment.
