Orienteering Mid Wales

Mid Wales Orienteers (formerly Powys and North Ceredigion Orienteering Club, and still known as POW for short!) holds events across most of Mid Wales, including Montgomeryshire, north Ceredigion and Radnorshire.

Orienteering is a sport which involves navigating on foot, using a specially prepared and very detailed map, around a series of check points. Courses are usually between 3km and 15km in length, depending on your age and level of experience. Orienteering is a sport which is suitable for all ages, with classes at the larger events for everyone from the under 10s to the over 75s. You will need to be fit enough to walk for up to an hour over undulating terrain, but apart from this you can compete at whatever speed you like. The top orienteers are extremely fit runners, many of whom also compete in other running sports, but others prefer to take their time and enjoy the scenery, and for many the main challenge is in the map-reading.
