Map scale: 1:7,500 (beginner course: 1:5,000)
Courses offered include the following:
Beginner Course - 1.1 km with 7 Controls
For those new to orienteering, this course features controls located on-trail or on prominent features. Access and navigation will be straight forward using the map.
The distance noted above is the distance between controls measured as the crow flies; expect to walk/run just shy of twice this distance.
Intermediate Course – 2.2 km with 11 Controls
For those looking for more of a navigational challenge and slightly longer distance, this course starts with controls on easy trails and moves progressively towards harder to get to controls. More route choice and compass work than the beginner course. This course would be suitable to a beginner with confidence in map reading and interested in a slightly longer course. It also suits more experienced participants not interested in the length and physical challenge of the advanced course.
Advanced Course – 2.9 km with 13 Controls
For those looking for lots of route choice, challenging terrain, this course will features plenty of map and compass work. Prepared to get wet shoes.
Cost:$5 for Junior participants, $8 for Adults. This event will include SportIdent Timing. SI Sticks will be available for rent for $2.
