In short: Orienteering Crawley In full: I'm a seasoned runner but I have never orienteered before. I was clueless and a bit nervous about the whole thing, but now I'm a convert. The event involved finding and running between 17 checkpoints as quickly as possible without getting lost, breaking an ankle or something like that. I'm pleased to say I managed this. My time wasn't particularly good, but I gather the Crawley course is technically quite challenging so I was pretty pleased to finish at all!
Support for rookies by the event organisers, the Southdown Orienteers, was first rate - I don't think you could hope for a friendlier group. Thoroughly recommended - I will certainly orienteer again. Date of review: September 14, 2008
