Permanent Orienteering Courses
Managed By: Icon Here Orienteers
Description:
This category is for waymarking permanent orienteering courses around the world.
Expanded Description:
Orienteering is a sport using an accurate, detailed map and a compass to find points in the countryside. It can be a walk in the woods or as a competitive sport.

Most orienteering courses are shown on a map, and have of a start, a series of control locations that are marked by numbered circles connected by lines, and a finish. The control site circles are centered around the topographical feature that is to be found in the real world.

The orienteer visits the site of the control marker, and “punches” his or her control card to verify the control has been visited.

The route between the controls is up to the orienteer.

Most orienteering courses are temporary, set up for an event on a specific day. However, many parks and orienteering clubs also have permanent courses, which can be used for training or casual, non-competitive orienteering. This category is to waymark the locations of these permanent courses.

Here are some examples of permanent orienteering courses: Orienteering Cincinnati Permanent Courses
