weekend is ideal if you’re just starting orienteering. Each event has courses to challenge all levels from beginner to
advanced, and the emphasis (Olympicly) is not in the winning but in the
taking part. Wear running clothes you don’t mind snagging (long pants

out - the Barebones weekend is for you.
