Rochester Orienteering Club Meet

When: Sat., June 22, 12 p.m. 2013

Starting from the Kanatota A Cabin. Participants will be given maps of the park with key locations noted. They must “punch in” at each of those locations in turn, and race to the finish. Separate courses will challenge participants in different age and skill groups with ribbons for winners. All ages and skill levels are welcome. The event begins at 12:00 noon, and with staggered-starts, all competitors must start by 2:00 P.M.. Competitors will have no more than 2 hours to complete their course. Distances vary from 1.5km to 7km based on difficulty. Preregistration through a link on the web site is encouraged but not required. Instruction leading to a beginner course will be available, and walking such a course can easily be accomplished in under an hour (but please plan to arrive early). Groups and families welcome. Cost: $8 per entry, discounted for club members (groups count as 1 entry). Recommended dress: Appropriate for trail walking, running, or off-trail movement within your capabilities. Long sleeves and nylon pants can provide protection if you plan to leave the trail. A compass would be helpful, and the club has some to loan if needed. Given the potential for inclement weather, please be aware that this event will take place rain or shine.
