Trail Orienteering is a sport offered to people with widely differing physical abilities, including those with severely restricted mobility, who all compete on equal terms. Competitors travel along a track or marked route and study clusters of control markers placed in the terrain. They are issued with a very detailed map and control descriptions. A compass is also a necessity. With these aids competitors must decide which (if any) of the markers relates to the feature depicted by the centre of the circle.

TrailO is an individual sport and consultation or discussion is not allowed on the course, nor are decisions to be communicated to any other competitor. Competitors in TrailO are not allowed to go into the terrain but must stay on the paths or marked routes.

For those coming to a TrailO event for the first time we strongly recommend you read the introduction to TrailO on the British Orienteering website and Brian Parker's very informative “Introduction to TrailO” to be found on the IOF website
