Welcome to Orienteering NSW

Orienteering is a sport that challenges both the body and the mind. It's also loads of fun!

The aim is to use a special orienteering map to navigate your way around a course and visit marked check points along the way. You choose a course that suits your age and experience and proceed at your own pace: walk, jog or run. It is a race but you decide if you want to just race yourself or be the next world champion! The course may take you through urban areas, parks, schools, farmland or forests.

Events are conducted weekly across NSW and beginners are welcome at all events.

Welcome back Ourimbah!

Our 2022 State League began under leaden skies on Saturday afternoon with the NSW Sprint Champs at Ourimbah, our first visit there for a decade.

This satellite campus of Newcastle uni offers a fairly straightforward northern half but a southern section with an intricate path network and lots of garden beds that are out of bounds.

Several competitors lost time in this part where the key was to navigate by the buildings rather than try to pick the optimal path.

The event also heralded our first look at the new multi-level running symbol - used for two creek crossings mid-map.

Wins that stood out were by Justine de Remy (W12A), Nick Stanley (M16A), Marguerite O'Rourke (W45A), and Barbara Hill (W55A) who won by just two seconds over Paula Shingler.

Meanwhile, Matt Bell (Hastings) earned our newest club's first NSW champs placing with a third in M40A.

Well done too to two rookies from our hosts Central Coast - Linda Salway (2nd in W65AS) and Deborah Dickson (3rd in W60A)  

A big thank you to setter Nick Dent, controller Hilary Wood, organiser Colin Price, all the helpers from Central Coast, and the landowners.
A second thanks to Nick for providing immediate post-race analysis on some of the key legs.
