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.

Big Foot double highlights glorious day at ML finals

Big Foot added another notch to their heavyweight belt by taking out MetrO League Divisions 1 and 2 in stunning weather on a new map at Cecil Hills on Sunday.

It was the first double in ML history in the top two grades, and even more impressive when you consider that Australia's champion orienteering club was without at least two of its gun runners. And... 4 of the 5 Divn 1 runners are over 50. What athletes !

The Divn 1 victory over WHO 34-21 made it six premierships in a row for the Feet and belied their draw in round 5 at Beacon Hill. ONSW president Greg Barbour led the way with the fastest time of the day of just under 30 minutes.

In Division 2 Big Foot also had a comfortable win, 33-22 over the Garingal Dragons who were missing three regulars. GO youngster Duncan Currie was fastest in 31.18.

WHO at least enjoyed some success with a tight 29-27 win over IKO in Division 3. WHO benefited from an extra point when Graeme Hill and Tim Perry both finished in 42.33, and Ian Froude (IK) was left ruing the three seconds he finished behind Daniel Smith. That's how close it was.

Bennelong Northside took out Division 4, 31-24 over the Garingal Monitors - but lost Division 5 (30-25) to SHOO's Golden Oldies.

Thank you to WHO for a great new area in Sydney, and to Robert Bradley - the 2013 ONSW Course Setter of the Year - for his excellent courses.

Congratulations to our winners for 2014:

Divn 1: Big Foot. Indiv medal: Andrew Hill (WHO)
Divn 2: Big Foot. Indiv medal: Angus Shedden (SHOO)
Divn 3: WHO. Indiv medal: Alex Karavaev (IKO)
Divn 4: Bennelong Northside. Indiv medal: Lewis Redner and Tania Kennedy (GO)
Divn 5: SHOO. Indiv medal: Samuel Tsang (BN)

Results, head-to-head results, the individual medal tallies and photos are all now available.

We thank all clubs for their wonderful spirit in 2014 and look forward to the 2015 season.
