6:20pm - Introduction to Orienteering for Beginners

6:30pm - Starts begin

8:00pm Course Closure, participants must report to the Finish by Course Closure Time.


First course is the standard point to point course, suitable for beginners, families, and others who just want to run themselves!

The second course will be o-tervals, i.e. orienteering intervals! Find a group of 2-3 people your speed. As 'intervals' suggests, there will be a number of short 2-4 control courses. The aim is to run faster than you normally would. Meet up with your group at the finish of each 'course', and walk to the next start location.

Safety Precautions:

There are a number of busy roads in the area. Please take the appropriate precautions when crossing roads. 

Parking/Start/Finish Locations:

Under the overhang at the school on 59th and Laurel. Parking is available on Laurel St. 

Post-Event Dining:

There will be food. Probably Pho. Bring your wallet!
