FOR BEGINNER/INTERMEDIATE PARTICIPANTS:

We are very pleased to offer a 45 minute ‘CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE’ race for less experienced orienteers, and those who are new the sport.  It can be completed solo, with a partner, or as a family.

This race involves 20-25ish checkpoints of various levels of difficulty scattered throughout the terrain.  Each checkpoint is assigned a different point value based on its difficulty. Participants are required to get as many points as possible in 45 minutes.  10 points a minute will be deducted for late finishers.  Challenge yourself to run through them all, or just go for a hike and have some fun along the way!!
