Orienteering is a competitive sport requiring participants to navigate themselves through a course
by visiting each checkpoint, known as a control, in the correct order using a specially drawn map. It
combines cross country running with navigation skills. The competitor who correctly completes the
course in the fastest time will be the winner.

Orienteering is arranged so that the most basic skills are taught first and once mastered progression
to the next step takes place. Beginners and their families are always welcome at all events run by
Orienteering Wellington and Orienteering Hutt Valley, and help is always on hand for newcomers.

In 2024 there are a number of events planned for Wellington schools. These are held on Sundays, approximately every two weeks from February 17 – TBC


Once a week in Terms 1 & 2.
