Why

Are you an able navigator in the great outdoors, on and off trails? Do you feel safe using a map to go somewhere new to you? Can you read a topographic map with ease? Do you get much use out of your compass? If your answer to any of these questions is "no", orienteering with New Mexico Orienteers can help you turn "no" into "yes".

Learn field navigation skills from expert coaches, then apply your new skills on one or more sport orienteering courses designed specifically to help you practice these skills.

Results are here.

Serious orienteers and adventure racers, do not miss the Red course designed by Robi Mulford!

Four courses. Yellow is very short for a Yellow course but has more technical difficulty than usual. Orange is short too but is both physically and technically more challenging than usual. Be sure to read the course setter's notes! Red and Green (aka short Red) are moderate in length but have some legs that should give advanced orienteers a physical and mental workout.
