Team Finder

Looking for a team to join or a teammate to join your team for a race?

It is not always easy to find teammates, especially when you’re new to the sport and often, at the last minute, a replacement may be needed.

When you’ve exhausted your supply of willing and able friends and relations, try this Team Finder.



In your comment below mention:

  • do you want to join a team or are you looking for someone to join your team
  • date of event
  • distance (sometimes events offer more than one distance)
  • where you are located (Jo’burg, Pretoria, Durbs, CT etc)
  • team format (mixed, pairs, 3’s, 4’s etc) and how many people you are looking to recruit
  • what type of person you’re looking for (male, female, experienced, navigator, workhorse, very fit, any)
  • your ambitions for the race (competitive, for fun, to gain experience)
  • your contact details (phone and email)
You’ll have more success if you’re more specific instead of “I’m looking for a team”. Rather try to build or join a team for a specific event. Please also use the AR email group, which is very effective.

Finally, when your request is successfully fulfilled, please add another comment saying so. I will remove your request from the list so that you don’t keep getting enquiries.

  5. Hi

    Looking for a racing partner.

    Your location in SA is not all that relevant as I train regularly and seek a partner that does the same.
    Possibly a partner with good orienteering skills? Male / female.

    Would prefer to identify a few races a year and train accordingly. I’m new to AR.
