4 courses to finish with a bang, 3 of them spread out over 2 maps with different scales! Route choices, and precise navigation to controls on longer courses
- Bonobo : 3.2km, 40m climb, focus is on route choices with few short sections through easy open forest. This course is a subset of the Gorilla and King Kong courses hence the dash line from control 8 to 19. Map is 1: 5000 scale. Intermediate level course mostly in open parks.
- Gorilla: 7.5km, 75m climb, an extension of Bonobo with > 1km legs with route choices to get you thinkin' . Dash line from 10 to 14 to 17 is your way for this course. Maps are 1:5000 and 1:10000. Expert level course due to overall distance, route choices, and final control locations
- King Kong: 11.5km, 150m climb, extension on Gorilla course with more long legs, route choices, and precise navigation close to the controls. It will likely be around 12-13km when all said and done assuming you optimize the route choices... Maps are 1:5000 and 1:10000. Elite level course. Don't forget to keep your mind sharp on these long legs.
