Nelson Orienteering Club

About the club

We organise a range of map-based navigation events throughout the year that are suitable for all ages, levels of fitness and experience.

The club has a fantastic range of maps in varied terrain - from urban parks and street areas to forests, farmland and sub-alpine terrain. Events will be either walking / running or mountain bike specific.
