Orienteering - the thinking sport.

Orienteering is the competitive sport of navigation. Using a detailed map (and occasionally a compass on advanced courses) participants try to find the quickest route through a series of marked checkpoints. Orienteering can be enjoyed at a relaxed walk or a cross-country run; the essence of the sport is you finding your own unique route.

The Columbia River Orienteering Club offers orienteering events year-round in the Portland Oregon area. Beginners are welcome at events, and you do not need to be a member of our club to participate.
