What is Orienteering?

Orienteering is a worldwide sport where the competitor uses a special, detailed map of an area on which a number of controls or checkpoints are marked. The participant decides on a route to reach these specific points or controls, in a specified sequence, as quickly as possible. The controls are marked by orange and white flags and there are markers at each location that allows the course organiser to know you have visited the correct control in the right sequence.

Urban / Street Orienteering takes place in an urban landscape (in this case Killarney) and by taking part, you can enjoy the historic urban landscape in a healthy and fun way.
