Orienteering is an exciting outdoor adventure sport which involves navigating around a course using a detailed map and sometimes a compass.
The aim is to navigate between a set of control points and decide the best route to complete the course in the quickest time. It does not matter how young, old or fit you are, and you can run, walk or jog round the course and progress at your own pace.

Killerton House as viewed from the water tank on Br/Bl courses

Killerton’s 10 square mile estate is a mix of pasture, parkland and forestry, including several working farms. There are some steep areas and clay pits/quarries. Livestock is present in some areas so dogs must be kept on leads and may not accompany competitors on their courses. There will be visitors to the National Trust house and parklands who must be treated with courtesy at all times.
