“Its a bit of a cliche but I would say that its the sense of thinking on one’s feet – I do enjoy and do a lot of standard running but orienteering offers so much more of a mental and physical challenge in terms of trying to maintain the perfect balance between running as quickly as possible and fully interpreting and processing the information provided on the map and borne out in front of you as you pass through the terrain.”
