The map is the most important tool for the orientation. The terrain is shown on a particularly large scale in order to achieve a detailed accuracy. Another aid is the compass, which is also used by the runners for orientation and to find the point they are looking for. Furthermore, orienteering is usually run with custom-made orienteering shoes in order to achieve a perfect grip.
