I already do cross-country running, why would I want to try orienteering?

Orienteering allows you to go much further off-path than you would in normal cross-country running. You have comprehensive, detailed maps which allow you to cover ground which you probably wouldn't tackle in any other sport. It also exercises your brain as well as your body as you have to keep a cool head as well as quick feet to get around in the fastest time. Since you are running on your own, against the clock it is a great personal challenge.
