What is Orienteering?
Orienteering is a sport that combines map reading and running. Competitors have to find their way between a series of checkpoints, called controls, as quickly as possible. There’s no set route between the controls, so you have to decide which way to go and then find your way there without getting lost.

A closed event for LOC members using a handicapped start system.
Note that for safety reasons the courses will close at 12:15.
The controls will be enabled in contactless mode so that those with SIAC dibbers should not need to physically punch the controls. However, note that it will be necessary to punch the start and finsh controls which will not be programmed in contactless mode.
Some notes on using SIACs are attached.
