Description

There will be 3 exciting short sprint courses- do as many or as few as you want! The results will be for time of each individual course, so rest between them and then you can practice orienteering at race pace, but get more in than just one sprint race.

The courses will (hopefully) be technical sprint courses with route choice and traps, there will be loose control descriptions so remember your control description holder, if you have one.

Please sign up by noon Wednesday to ensure you get a map.
