Sport Management students testing a new way of orienteering

During an examination in one course in the Sport Management Programme at the University of Karlstad I gave my fellow students the opportunity to test orienteering on an evacuation plan.


The evacuation plan was over the sport center and the adjacent areas.
I took a picture of the evacuation plan and changed the lighting in a picture editing software.

After that, I made six different courses that they could run. I had borrowed punching cards and units from my orienteering club, which we used during the event.



Some voices from my fellow students after the event:



– “The most fun orienteering I have ever done!
– “I could never imagine that orienteering could be so fun.
– “I realised that I had a smile on my face during my races.
– “An extraordinary way of taking orienteering to a new area, indoors.
– “Really fun to hear the beep from the punching cards.
