The Central Virginia Orienteering Club is a group dedicated to orienteering in the Richmond and central region of Virginia.  We are chartered with the national organization, Orienteering USA.  Orienteering is the sport of navigation with map & compass.

Head out into the woods to find specific locations shown on your map, making choices along the way of the best routes between them.  Orienteering is great for improving your map reading or wilderness navigation skills or preparing for adventure races.  Race against the clock for the shortest time or do it as a fun walk in the woods!

People of all ages and skill levels are welcome. Come join in the adventure!
