Orienteering Philippines plans to host the first National Orienteering Championship in March 2020 at a University Campus in the City of Manila.
– This will be our first event but the map has not been established yet, says Graham C. Lim, president/CEO Orienteering Philippines.
The event in March will also include a mapping seminar.
The vision of Orienteering Philippines is “to gain more people to get involved in more places, more stages in bringing the excitement, entertainment and expertise of navigation to wider public acceptance, by increasing the prospect of participants both in the schools and clubs activities as an educational way to encourage young people”.
