New to Orienteering?
Orienteering is a challenging outdoor adventure sport that exercises both the mind and the body. It’s an adventure sport for all! The aim of orienteering is to navigate in sequence between control points marked on a unique orienteering map and to decide the best route to complete the course in the quickest time. It doesn’t matter how young, old, fit or unfit you are as you can run, walk, jog and progress at your own pace.
The following was taken from all the main orienteering events results list on the SOA website for 2013 togetherwith the 6 Days. A total of 34 club members took part The list includes all who took part in more than 6 events.
