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.

2022 Encouragement Award

The ONSW Encouragement Award is presented to an orienteer who makes efforts to encourage other orienteers by both personal efforts and example and has added to the social aspect of orienteering in NSW. 

Richard Pattison (Bennelong Northside Orienteers) received the 2022 ONSW Encouragement Award (also known as the Cox’s Cup, as it was donated by Bryony and Tim Cox in 1994) for the enjoyment he offers Sydney Summer Series competitors through his large range of statistics on start options, route choices, control visits etc. For example, any competitor can see their route choices and split times compared with any other competitor, starting many conversations.  Richard is a valued club member, mapping new areas and setting up MapRun courses.  

See link for some of his SSS work this summer and Select Runner - SSS Splits 2022-3 | Tableau Public

Bryony Cox presents Richard Pattison with the award at a recent Sydney Summer Series Event.
