Orienteering is an international sport.

Using a map and compass, runners have to find marked controls. Then they run to the Finish.

Each are in age groupings like W10 (females under ten), or M12, (boys under twelve).

Gang O Kids belong to the Bunyip Orienteering Club. They meet each weekend at different locations.

They are cunning runners who solve 'thought sport' mysteries ,on and off the map!

But sometimes things go wrong.

This collection of short mysteries has the same cast of junior orienteers.

  • Jaimie- the -Brainy likes computer games.
  • Practical joker Tina is a fast runner.
  • Her twin, Emma, notices birds, animals and even yucky stuff. Both twins navigate well with a compass.
  • 'Mars Bar' Mario, loves finding facts and eating.
  • Kate, the youngest is the hardest trier.

Hazel Edwards likes writing about sport for new readers. Download writing_junior_sports_fiction_orienteering_gang_o_kids.pdf
