Registration is at the event site. You can start anytime, and go at your own pace. At the park, look for the orienteering flag:  that marks the meeting place.

New, for TOC members only: If you find you can’t attend a meet, but would like to run the course, send an email to the event coordinator. We’ll provide you with a PDF of the map that you can print to run at your convenience.
