Oceania Orienteering Championships 2025  |  24-27 January & warm-up events 18-19 January

Join us in the summer of 2025 for an unforgettable orienteering adventure through the stunning sand dunes and pines of the Manawatū. Our races will challenge your navigation skills and decision-making across a variety of fast and intricate forest maps.

Oceania 2025 events are designed to provide elite orienteers with ideal training and competition grounds ahead of the World Orienteering Championships in the wilds of Finland later in the year. However, you don’t need to be a seasoned athlete to enjoy your time in the forest—orienteering is an inclusive sport, and Oceania 2025 offers courses tailored to everyone’s skill level. So come and explore these beautiful areas at your own pace, or run your heart out chasing the top spots. We look forward to seeing you and hope you have a great time orienteering with us next January.

Embargoed areas: People intending to compete at the Oceania Orienteering Champs 2025 will need to be aware of the embargoes in place for the event. Embargoes are areas that are out of bounds to competitors prior to the events, and cover the areas being used in the competition. This prevents unfair prior knowledge being gained about the terrain and map features. View the embargo information here
