Orienteering

 

We are delighted to announce that orienteering will be included in the Games for a second year running. Orienteering is a great way to combine outdoor competition with map reading and navigation skills. Organised by Top End Orienteers, we are especially keen for participants from other sports to add this fun navigation sport to their timetable. We are offering an expanded set of events this year, including foot, mountain bike and night orienteering. Newcomers to orienteering will be able to complete these events and instructions and coaching will be available prior to commencement. There are no membership requirements for competing. The foot and night orienteering competitions will be solo events, but the mountain bike orienteering may be completed in pairs.
