Orienteering is a sport in which people race across complicated terrain, using a map to find specific control points. If you found this page through a QR code, you probably came across one of our control point markers, which look like flags or kites. When competitors find those markers they use a device attached to it to "punch in." This records a pin code in a piece of paper or data on an electronic device on their finger. Officials keep track of the time it takes each person to find all of the control markers on their course, in the correct order.
