Orienteering ACT Inc

Acronym: 
OACT

Orienteering is a sport which involves finding your way through unfamiliar country with the aid of a map and a special compass. Competitions are run, where the participants leave at regular intervals from the starting point and must find their way to various checkpoints and finally back to the finish. The person finishing with the shortest elapsed time is the winner Orienteering can be enjoyed by either sex, young and old, fit and unfit. Because you make your own pace in orienteering, it's an ideal sport for the whole family to compete as a group. The length of an orienteering course varies from about 2km (with 6 to 10 checkpoints) for beginners and the not-so-fit to about 12km or more for the experienced orienteers. In between there is the choice of several other course lengths for those who are past the beginners' stage.
