Orienteering Fitness

Orienteers are required to run over rough ground, forest terrain or rough open hills - it is truly cross country. Events can last from 30 minutes up to several hours - therefore a high level of endurance fitness is required.

Due to the uneven terrain, considerable body strength and agility is also needed. In addition to the technical training required, the orienteer must train like a long distance runner.
