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.

47th Great NOSH Footrace / Thanks to Barbara Hill

The 47th Great NOSH Footrace was held last Sunday. There were plenty of orienteers out trail running or volunteering for the day.
Some orienteers at the top end of results included Georgina Beech (WHO), Steven Horrocks (GO) and Nick Stanley (GO).
The Great NOSH Footrace is an Orienteering NSW event, organised by Bold Horizons and Bennelong Northside Orienteers with volunteers provided by Garingal Orienteers, Uringa Orienteering Club, Big Foot Orienteers, Western & Hills Orienteers and Bennelong Northside Orienteers.
Special thanks to Barbara Hill from Bold Horizons for organising the event and allocating all the volunteers jobs etc.
Thanks to all those clubs and the 40+ volunteers that were in attendance for many hours and in the days leading up to the event.
Tentative date is Sunday, 4 June 2023 for The 48th Great NOSH Footrace next year.
Hopefully we will be back at Lindfield for the start, with less COVID, flu, rain, track closures, track erosion and more issues that all made appearances this year.
All results are at:
