Finding your way

There is much more to orienteering than just knowing your way around.

Originally used as training in land navigation for military officers, it is a sport that requires speed, endurance and a wide variety of skills.

Take the kids and have a go when the Marlborough Orienteering Club's Summer Series of events get under way on Thursday.

The first event departs from 5 Rogers St between 6pm and 6.30pm, and is a Rogaine style mini-event, orienteering around Blenheim.

Participants must go out over a set period (either 30 minutes or 1 hour) and collect controls that are pre-marked on their maps.

Answering simple questions will identify whether they have found the places marked.
