The MOF, one of the CMoF’s tests of excellence, has as it’s main objective to take the name of Madeira across borders through Orienteering as a promotion vehicle. If we consider that many of the athletes who visit us come from regions where this modality is in a more evolved state, it is CMoF’s obligation to strive for excellence in this event. With this effort, we are contributing to the evolution of Orienteering in Madeira in its various technical and organizational aspects.

For all this, and because Madeiran athletes are in the first place, we expect a massive participation both from Madeiran athletes and from those who are not federated yet who practice orienteering in a more playful and accessible way or even for those who intend to try this modality that has so much to offer. interesting and challenging.


Within the scope of the sports cooperation partnership established between the Clube de Montanha do Funchal and the Palheiro Nature Estate, it is informed that the athletes who will participate in MOF2023 and who travel by car or plane will have the possibility to contribute to a ecological cause supported by the Palheiro Nature Estate.

Thus, each athlete who wants to be part of this contribution will be able to calculate their ecological footprint, through the free use of the APP, Greener Act, and, later, “offset” this footprint, through participation in sustainable activities, namely the one chosen by Palheiro. Nature Estate: contribution to the reforestation of the Ecological Park of Funchal through the planting of trees.

With this initiative, Palheiro Nature Estate, as a local organization in partnership with Clube Montanha do Funchal, is creating, measuring and providing more sustainable, conscientious and purposeful experiences, and all traveling athletes, by showing interest, participating and contributing, actively demonstrate the its commitment to community interaction and ecological protection, which is a common concern for all orienteering athletes and transversal to the practice of outdoor sports.
