Along with traditional orienteering on foot, many club schedules also include special orienteering events -- such as cross-country ski O (in season), canoe O, and mountain bike O. Some clubs offer Trail O, a form of orienteering geared for people of all physical abilities, with more emphasis on map interpretation as opposed to movement through terrain.
You can also use the events map on Attackpoint.org to find events that have been added to that site's calendar. An event finder for the Orienteering USA site is under construction at this time.
Find schedules listed by orienteering discipline:
Many multi-day and/or major events use the Event Register system, developed by Kent Shaw and administered by Ed Despard. See events for which you can register online. (Event Register opens in a new secure window [https])
Be sure to check your membership card and use your Orienteering USA member number
when registering (if applicable).
For participants not familiar with Event Register, this information page details the steps to complete the online registration form.
This September, re-discover your inner child! Learn map skills! Practice navigation! Have a great day in the woods by yourself or with family and friends at a National Orienteering Week event.
Clubs around the country will recognize National Orienteering Week during the month of September. While all orienteering events welcome novices and provide instruction in the sport, National Orienteering Week (NOW) is particularly focused on those trying it for the first time. Find a NOW event by checking the schedule of the club nearest you. The club listing page shows a calendar icon for each club, which links directly to their relevant page.
Give orienteering a try!
