Why not give Street Orienteering a go?



What is Street Orienteering?

Street Orienteering is a variation of the competitive sport of Orienteering. You are given a specially prepared orienteering map. The map shows streets, parks and pathways and the location of a number of clues. Each clue is worth different points. You have to navigate your way around finding the answers to the clues and writing them on your map sheet. Your aim is to maximise your score and be back at the Start / Finish Location within one hour.  Your answers are then checked to see if they are correct.

Street Orienteering provides the perfect combination of mental and physical exercise and social interaction. You do not need a compass or any special map reading ability; however it will test your thinking. You may walk as fast or slow as you like and enjoy a great walk in a friendly, safe, outdoor environment – and we always finish with a coffee and a chat at a nearby cafe!
