Sometimes it's easier to learn by watching than by reading about it, and we've pulled together some instructional videos from around the internet, to show you what orienteering looks like.
There are clips of junior competitors, families, a full race from a participants viewpoint, and an introductory clip made by the GB team.
Further videos by the GB athletes can be found here, and were made by South London Orienteers, in conjunction with On the Red Line podcast
