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.

QB3 Day 2 Review in Wagga Wagga

Day 2 at Burngoogee was cold with some misty rain.

Course setters for today’s long races were orienteering royalty, Jenny Bourne and Geoff Lawford on behalf of OACT, and their courses were well received, utilising the faster, more open terrain with some classic long legs mixed with shorter technical legs in the scattered granite.

In the elite classes, Nea Shingler, Sam Woolford, and Grace Crane all backed up their day 1 wins with comfortable wins over the longer distances.

Alistair George also went back-to-back but he was chased all the way by Martin Dent, the final margin being just 45 seconds over 11.1 kms.

One of the closest results came in M18 where Oscar Brown pipped Cooper Horley by just 4 seconds after 6.9km.

In M70A, Nick Dent, Bill Jones and Bruce Bowen finished 1, 2, 3 for the second day straight. 

There were many other 2-day winners across junior and senior classes, leaving them well placed for overall victory after tomorrow’s Sprint at CSU.

 

QB3 Day 1 Review in Wagga Wagga

Day 1 Middle distance was cold but dry with the courses set by NSW Stingers young guns Ewan Shingler and Duncan Currie testing competitors and drawing praise.

After a steep walk to the start, courses zig zagged across and down the steep hillside through technical granite terrain.

A stand out (see photos) was 98 year old Herman Werner completing the M95 course, with support from daughter Kirsten.

NSW Stingers WOC team member Alistair George was a strong winner in M21A whilst Canberra's Grace Crane won clearly in W21A.

JWOC bound Stingers Nea Shingler and Erica Enderby quinella'd W20A whilst another Stingers JWOC team member, Sam Woolford, won M20A.

It was also very encouraging to see so many entries in the junior classes.
