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. These sessions are led by members of Wimborne Orienteering Club and offer the perfect introduction to map reading and orienteering skills using the permanent orienteering course markers in Moors Valley Forest.
