Orienteering is an outdoor adventure sport. The aim is to navigate between control points marked on an orienteering map and decide the best route to complete the course in the quickest time. It does not matter how young, old or fit you are, as you can run, walk or jog and progress at your own pace.

These events are specifically aimed to introduce children and their parents to the sport. However all our events have courses suitable for all abilities - see elsewhere on our website for more details.

Cloth badges will be awarded to all those who navigate to more than 25 controls accross the series.


Course registration is open from 1pm to 2.30pm most are based near to the park cafes but look out for the green SOS banner. Competitors will need to complete a registration form. They will receive a map with the course printed on it and an electronic timing chip. All children will need to bring a watch. Parents can talk through the course and can shadow (follow) inexperienced competitors around the course but please let children navigate themselves.
