Orienteering



Orienteering is a competitive sport that combines navigation and racing. Participants use navigational skills to find their way to various checkpoints with a map and sometimes a compass. Orienteering is easy to learn and a fun way to exercise your mind and body outdoors. Orienteering is not only about running fast but selecting the best route to each checkpoint and visiting them in the correct order.

The Orienteering Trail at G.T. Bray Park begins and ends at the amphitheater, accessible from 2811 51st St W, Bradenton, FL 34209.
