Laytown Beach Orienteering – training day

Orienteering is a fantastic outdoor activity that combines running/walking with navigation (traditionally using a map and compass). Participants use their speed and coordination to locate a number of flags located around a course in the shortest time possible. Participants can time their run or compete against each other as part of a competitive event.
