Join us for a fun winter day on January 15th at the Claireville Conservation area.
Early bird prices are available until January 1st 2017.
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.
We will provide a beginner clinic and an easy course for newcomers to the sport.
|Start time||Sunday, January 15th, 5:30 am|
Meet directors: Oliver Test
