Don’t worry if it’s your first time.  We want to make orienteering an enjoyable experience!!

For the first two weeks of the series we allow students who are new to orienteering to go around the course in pairs.

We also have a couple of roaming orienteering lifeguards out on the course to offer support/tips if you get a bit lost or need help.

And check out the video below for beginner tips if it’s your first event.


All you need is a pair of running shoes, active clothes and something warm for afterwards if the weather is cooler.  The events happen rain or shine, so a rain jacket is recommended.


All participants must be a bona fide student of an Auckland Secondary School with a maximum age U19 as at 1st January 2024.


  • Year 9 – Junior
  • Year 10 & 11 Intermediate
  • Year 12 & 13 Senior
