In an orientation run you search mark points in the landscape by using a map and a compass. All the participants try to reach a number of posts, marked on the map, in an unknown territory. The route predetermined. Each post is recognizable by clear, orange-red white buoys. As proof that you reached the requested post, a control card or electronic chip registers all the details. The route has to be finished as quickly and correct as possible. Sport, nature and observation are the key words in this orientation run.
