What is Orienteering?
Orienteering requires some basic navigational skills using a map and compass to navigate from point to point and normally moving at speed.
Participants are given a map which they use to find control points. It is a type of treasure hunt on foot but this time in hills of the Brecon Beacons or on the coast of the Gower. It can involve a race against the clock and other teams.
