Whangarei Orienteering
WELCOME to this local Orienteering site.
We are a small local group who have been working to get Orienteering back on the "map" in Northland. (pardon the pun). At present we run our own events up here, but remain affiliated to the Northwest Orienteering Club.A new calendar of events has been posted for the 2012 season. . Things start off with the Summer Pathfinding Series, which will be held every Thursday from the 9th of FEB until the 17th March. Then in April we will commence the Off-road Sunday Events.
Through this website we hope to keep you informed with upcoming Events, results and links to other sites.

Often described as "cunning running", Orienteering offers an intellectual challenge in addition to ordinary exercise.It is a sport for everyone regardless of age and experience.
It is a sport that involves finding your way across country with the aid of a map and sometimes a compass. Orienteers follow a course as accurately as possible between control points usually marked by orange and white flags, using their skill in map reading to choose the best route. For more info check out the NZOF webite .
