Devon Orienteering

New to Orienteering?

This information is to help beginners and those new to the sport into orienteering. 

Orienteering means maps, forests and adventure.

You can run, jog or walk, and choosing your route to the red and white markers is fun.

It doesn’t matter how young, old or fit you are, you go at your own pace.

If you like excitement, fresh air and exploring the countryside, then Orienteering could be the sport for you.

When you attend your first event, let someone at registration know and they will be pleased to find someone to help you.

You might also find the information for Newcomers to the sport, on the British Orienteering website, helpful: Newcomers Guide
