Are you a runner, hiker or outdoor enthusiast looking for a new way to challenge yourself? Try orienteering- the competitive sport of navigation.
Using a detailed map (and occasionally a compass) you 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 (CROC) offers orienteering events year-round in the Portland Oregon area. Beginners and non-club members are are welcome at events.
