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.

Want to enter an event? You can see what's on by looking at the Coming Events at left or by going to the Event Calendar. Some events are enter on the day - you just turn up and register at the start. Other events require pre-entry and for that you need to know about (and register with) Eventor - read the Eventor FAQ.

Junior boys win national relay title

A massive congratulations to the NSW junior boys team who took out the Australian schools relay and prevented a Kiwi clean sweep.

Alistair George (BF, R), Duncan Currie (GO, L) and Callum Davis (BF) had three wonderfully consistent runs to finish 1:18 ahead of the New Zealand side. The Big Foot boys were fastest in their races, while Duncan was second in his leg.

Alistair has been posting sensational times in MetrO and State Leagues this year, Duncan has been running up an age group in M16A and Callum performs best when the big events are on. 

The whole NSW orienteering community salutes these boys, coach Joack and manager Sally for this win.

The senior boys (Garingal trio Daniel Hill, Toby Wilson, Aidan Dawson) were fourth home, 10:37 behind the Kiwi champs but only 4:25 adrift of the first Aussie team home (Tasmania).

The senior girls were also fourth, alas 43 minutes off third place. The junior girls were last of the 10 teams but they are a very young bunch and have some years ahead of them in this division.

In the schools individual champs on Wednesday, our best performers were Georgia Jones (UR) third in the senior girls and the second Australian home and Daniel Hill seventh (third Australian) in the senior boys. Callum was ninth in the junior boys and Claire Burgess (NC) 14th in the junior girls.

Following the two days of schools action, Georgia and Daniel were named in the Australian Schools Honour Team. 

The relay results are here and the individual results here.
