Talented EckO Junior Louis Macmillan, competing in M18, not only managed a podium place but clinched first place. Louis has had a fantastic season so far and long may it continue. Congratulations to Carol Burnapp also for competing in W50. Hope the knee held up!

New to Orienteering?

Orienteering Control

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.
