A carnival of challenging and exciting forest events

Join us in the Summer of 2025 for an unforgettable orienteering holiday across the gorgeous sand dune forests of the Manawatū. The events will test your fine navigation and route choice skills across a palette of fast and intricate forest maps.

We will have courses to suit everyone from beginners to elite athletes, and the elite courses are qualifiers for World Championship selection.

The events are based in and around the Manawatū area of New Zealand, within driving distance of Palmerston North.
