For the O-Cup series of orienteering races some of the controls on the map are drawn inside a ‘box’. Depending on your handicap (see below) you can skip a number of these controls. Ideally, the handicaps are adjusted so that the race is equally difficult for all participants, and everyone should finish at the same time.

All courses will close after 90 minutes. Please make sure you return to the finish within the time limit. Check in with the race officials as soon as you reach the finish, whether you complete the course or not.

Bonus: We will also offer a Beginner Course to the event, for beginners to orienteering. While not part of the O-Cup Series, the Beginner Course will give new orienteerers a valuable chance to practice and develop their nascent skills. The course will be set entirely on trail, and quite safe for all ages. We do ask that very young children be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
