THE RACE ORIENTATION - CO (FOOT Orienteering)

The Orienteering (Foot Orienteering) was the first ever between the sports orientation and throws its origins more than a century ago. Practiced mainly in the natural environment, it is also called the "sport of the woods" and was born in the Scandinavian countries. 

Given the roughness of the tracks, almost never beaten, the CO concentration is of great sport and physical endurance, in which orienteers compete through unmarked trails, armed only topographic map andcompass, in order to reach the final goal in the shortest as possible after transition in a predetermined order along all the control points, known as "lanterns".

ORIENTATION OF PRECISION - TRAIL-O (TRAIL Orienteering)

The regulation of TRAIL-O is aimed at competing with limited mobility and people with disabilities.Participants must follow the path on the cards going to choose the best route, always going through all the control points marked. Main talent is here the knowledge of cartography. Are permitted various types of assistance to the orienteers: by wheelchairs, both manual and automated media for walking. 

Obviously the speed and time in walking the path are not taken into account in the TRAIL-O. The final ranking is drawn up based on the score obtained in the proper recognition and reporting of various lanterns.

EQUIPMENT

In addition to its ability to "natural" orienting outdoors and often inaccessible, practitioners of foot orienteering make use of special equipment that allows them to perform the track in the best possible way.You must first consider that the race course is not never felt before by athletes, who race day at the start with an idea you have only theoretical, or nearly so, of the route.

The essential tools of the stroke orientation are the compass and topographic map.

The orienteering compass features a needle that indicates magnetic north and a transparent base that allows easy reading of the map. The compass is tied to the wrist with a lanyard and, for some types of compass, also to the thumb of the hand. This allows the athlete to hold comfortably in your hand is the compass that paper. 

Topographic maps are special maps in the scale variable, depending on the categories (from 1:4000 to 1:15000) with detailed information about the land on which the competition takes place, the type of vegetationand crops under the conditions of roads , paths and crossings and the presence of ditches, ramparts, ruins, or otherwise. Any information required orienteer is illustrated with special colors and conventional symbols,unified worldwide. 

The cards also shows the control points, or lantern, which transit. These are clearly recognizable by theirwhite and orange and each lantern "forgotten" carries a penalty. There are two types of lantern: manual (with punch) or electronic (equipped with a special chip). 

Orienteers bring with them a witness of the race, or a personal card, which is delivered together with the paper at the beginning of the race, and returned at the end. In addition to the data of the athlete, including the times of departure and arrival, the witness records (manually or electronically) of the runner steps on individual lanterns with various punching in the appropriate box. 

As for the 'clothing used in the race orientation, athletes are wearing a suit made ​​of lightweight material and waterproof which protects from scratches and abrasions possible in the bush. The shoes feature durablenon-slip soles that allow for maximum grip on any surface. Permitted the use of protective goggles, while it is prohibited to use any GPS device.
