    Local Schedules

    Hundreds of local orienteering events are held throughout the United States each year, organized by local clubs. They are held in state parks, national forests, town recreation areas, and other sites with easy access. Along with traditional foot orienteering, many club schedules also include special orienteering events — such as ski-O, canoe-O, and mountain bike-O — and some clubs offer trail-O, a form of orienteering geared for people of all physical abilities.

    Find out more about Rogaines and "goat" races.

    Local orienteering events are inexpensive, casual, and open to everyone. Most offer several different courses, from string-O for toddlers to advanced courses for experts — and beginners' instruction is always available. To find out more about events in your area, check the schedule of the club nearest you.

    An event finder for Orienteering USA club events is found on the OUSA home page (hosted by Attackpoint.org).
