What we're about

The Greater Phoenix Orienteering Club is a group dedicated to the sport of orienteering. Orienteering is an event in which competitors use map and compass skills to navigate over terrain as quickly as possible in order to find a series of pre-placed "control" markers. Think of it as a poor man's adventure race or an adult Easter egg hunt. Our meets are open to everyone of all ages and skill levels. Come on out and have some fun running around the desert with us.

Needs a location

We're once again offering a set of short navigation events at our South Mountain event site in Phoenix. In coordination with City of Phoenix park rangers, we'd like to welcome you to our FREE events at the Piedras Grandes picnic area in South Mountain Park. This area contains navigation challenges through different desert terrains including mountain peaks, dry washes, rocky outcrops, etc. We hope you'll take the time to join us to practice your navigation skills at one of our few event sites inside Phoenix city limits.
