Orienteering is a sport which involves using specially drawn maps and sometimes a compass, to navigate around a pre-set course. You can be competitive or you can simply enjoy the countryside and the challenge of successfully navigating around a course.
The club has a regular programme of events, which usually have a range of courses available. Courses range in both length and technical difficulty, so people of all ages and abilities are catered for - it is an ideal family sport.
We welcome non-members at our events - you don't need any special equipment, just wear shoes suitable for walking or running. At the event, please ask if you need some help - there will be someone who will advise on a suitable course and then help get you started.
HB had four teams running in the Taupo Katoa Po event on Saturday night.
Winning Schools are decided.
