Like an orienteering race, the principle is to walk from a map in order to find, while moving, checkpoints marked by punching beacons installed here and there, in places that are more or less easy to detect, at the bottom of a slope, in the middle of brambles or ferns, in the shade of a pine tree or by a stream...
