Control punching, Dalkeith Park
An orienteering control in action: competitors prove they have completed the course by placing a chip into a box at the flag. The memory chip carried by the runner then has the time of visit recorded. At the finish, the time is calculated by computer and the runner gets a printout of all the times between controls on the course.
Orienteering is cross country running, where shortcuts are allowed. The course is defined by a series of flags. You have to visit the flags in order,as fast as possible, the trick being to also work out from a map the quickest route.
