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!!
