Orienteering

 

Before registering for your event, please read the Sunflower State Games General Rules, Refund Policy and Frequently Asked Questions.

 
Can you think while you run? Orienteering is a sport that combines racing with navigation! Use your brain instead of a GPS.  You will be given a detailed map with pre-marked checkpoints on it. You then choose the best route to get from checkpoint to checkpoint as fast as you can. Sometimes the straight line is not the best route! There are challenges for navigating around a college campus (including the fact that you can't run through the buildings). This event is suitable for fast runners and slow hikers looking for an added challenge. Perfect for kids and adults; can participate as an individual or group. Great way to get the family outdoors for a fun adventure!
