Urban parkland running with some trails, grass, sand, and pavement. Tonight will feature a dog bones course as well as a point-to-point course for beginners. Dog bones is an type of score-o event, but you have to get pairs of controls in the order of your choice instead of a single control. It's up to you to decide which order you think is the fastest. If you've never done dog bones before, it's lots of fun with some quick decision making! The ground is really soggy right now, so wear something you're prepared to get wet!
