What we're about
Orienteering is a sport where the participant uses a topographic map and a compass to navigate to particular points. At those points are flags called controls. The goal is to find the controls in order along the orienteering course. Participants can be fast competitors who race from control to control or casual participants who walk from control to control. In both instances the sport requires both mental and physical skills. The Buffalo Orienteering Club hosts multiple events each year for people new to orienteering and veteran competitors. The club also provides instructional opportunities for anyone interested in learning how to do orienteering. We look forward to seeing you out on the trails.
