Orienteering Hutt Valley Inc.

Orienteering Hutt Valley

Orienteering Hutt Valley is an orienteering club based in the Hutt Valley part of the Wellington region of New Zealand.

Orienteering is a family of sports where you use a map and sometimes a compass to navigate courses on foot (and/or bike), over farm, forest or bush country, as accurately and quickly as possible.

Getting started

The best way to get started with orienteering is to find out what events are happening in our area, pre-register if required, then turn up prior to the starting time, and at the registration desk advise that you're new to the sport. They'll let you know what course is most suitable, hire you any timing equipment, and give you some tips to get underway. See here for more details.
