Event Details

We are excited to be able to offer three new maps for these events in a part of New Zealand that has rarely been mapped or used for orienteering before, and to supplement them with an area first used for Oceania in 2009 with the quirky but cute name of “Humpy Bumpy” near Earthquakes for the relay.

Schedule of the NZ Orienteering Championship Events:

All Events are to be run following the 2016 ONZ Competition Rules for Foot Orienteering Events.

In total, four days of intensely detailed areas with guaranteed orienteering navigational challenges. Each event will test your navigational prowess and provide plenty of challenges in new terrain. The course planners are looking forward to setting courses that highlight the unique detail in the area so we can use it to its full potential.

Access to privately owned property and care for it is important to us all as Orienteers. PAPO works hard to maintain good relationships with landowners, and we are careful to leave the land chosen for our events the same way we found it.
Please consider this as our guests at these events, and respect the environment and private property.
