Orienteering, the sport of nature.

Orienteering is a sport for everyone, regardless of age or experience. The competitive athlete can experience the exhilaration of running through the woods at top speed, while the non-competitive orienteer can enjoy the forest at a more leisurely pace. Most events provide courses for all levels–from beginner to advanced.

The sport is also a game for children, where they have the opportunity to learn about geographic, maps, flower, threes, animals, and science. The sport comes from the Nordic countries and the legend often say that it was a way of finding the way back home for children.
