is a sport where you navigate your way though a series of checkpoints
using a map choosing your own route as you go. It's basically a
suped-up scavenger hunt.
Where: Part way up the Postill Lake FSR - it is 2WD accessible. See the Google map at the bottom of the page for exact meeting location.

We will have three different courses to suit all skill levels and physical abilities, and will offer a beginner and intermediate workshop prior to the event. If you have never orienteered before, we recommend signing up for the beginner course no matter your physical ability. If you get through it quickly you are welcome to also do the intermediate or advanced course at no extra cost.
Courses are measured in a straight line - but remember that you pick your own route so you are almost guaranteed to go further than the posted distance.
