Anne Tynegate writes: "These were taken after the sprint final in Copenhagen - so we look less bedraggled than the ones taken after the forest events!
The events were excellent and John and I were both pleased to qualify for the "B" finals, rather than being in the bottom final, especially as most of the other competitors were Scandanavian, so serious competition!

What is Orienteering?

Orienteering is an exciting outdoor adventure sport which involves walking or running whilst navigating around a course using a detailed map and sometimes a compass. The aim is to navigate in sequence between a set of control points and decide the best route to complete the course in the quickest time. It does not matter how young, old or fit you are, as you can run, walk or jog the course and progress at your own pace.
Orienteering can take place anywhere from remote forest and countryside to urban parks and school playgrounds. It's a great sport for runners, joggers and walkers who want to improve their navigation skills or for anyone who loves the outdoors.

Watch this video and see ten reasons why orienteering is the best sport ever to get the idea.
