Well, the weather was fine, we had a great turnout but some *!#% stole the last control! So I’ve adjusted the results to reflect the time up the control prior to the missing one.
So David Sharpe took good advantage of his handicap to take the first place with adjusted time while Linda, despite not clearing her card and taxing my ingenuity to fix her problem, took second place. Hayden, Jeremy and John were the fastest on the course, with one of our fastest runners (Ben) moving too fast to punch some controls. Kristen and Zara continue to dominate on the Short course.
As usual, things just wouldn’t work out without our team of volunteers – Patricia, David and Sandra on registration, Martin vetting and Diana having multiple roles including vetting, instructing and serving as the last control. Many thanks to all of them!

RegistrationRegistration and Start/Finish will be at the SouthWest end of the first parking lot – see map on web site. Registration will be open from 6:00 to 6:45. Please try to be on time!
Starts: Determinator mass start 7:00pm. Individual starts for Determinator and Short course 6:30 to 7:00. Course closure 8:00 – we need to pick up controls before dark
Courses: There will be two levels of courses. Both will have controls close to trails although the best routes between controls may be cross-country.
- Short – about 1.9km. Visit all controls and in sequence
- Determinator – about 2.6km. Visit controls in sequence but one control can be skipped. The challenge here is deciding which one to skip while trying to keep up with (or get ahead of) the pack
Awards and Handicaps: There will be a token award for the winner (adjusted for handicap) of the Determinator each week. For your first event of the year you will have a handicap of 1. Your future handicaps will be based on your time compared with the winner’s.
Bring: a compass and whistle (mandatory). Wear clothing that is suitable for running.
SI: This event will be using Sport-Ident punching. Bring your stick or $2 to rent one
Cost: $8 per adult, $5 per junior (19 and under). Membership required. (Free for first-time participants)
Preregistration: To give us an idea of how many maps to print, we’d appreciate it if you could either register for the event on our web site or contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Pre-registration isn’t mandatory – it’s just helpful to us if you do let us know in advance. We’ll have spare maps for “drop-ins”
