Orienteering at Sherwood Pines - routes to suit beginners and experts alike

Orienteering is both an exciting and challenging outdoor sport that exercises both mind and body, and also a great family activity that will entertain the family for hours. The aim for everyone is to navigate between control points marked on an orienteering map.

Here at Sherwood it doesn't matter how young, old or fit you are, as you can run, walk or jog on a course that is planned to suit you.

If you are a little more competitive, the challenge is to complete the course in the quickest time choosing your own best route either on your own or as part of an organised competition.
