1) This is a daytime event- the course will be open for 6 hours for teams and 3hours for the solo racers to collect as many points as possible. Teams and individuals may turn in their punchcard at any time for scoring, but to remain competitive teams must prepare to be on the course as long as possible and be able to quickly and strategically navigate to control points
2) For the 6hr Team Competitive: Teams must have at least 2 members and no more than 6 total. Team members may drop from the race but the team must finish with at least 2 original members to be scored.
3) Control points are worth different amounts of points depending on their difficulty to navigate to. Compass will be required to get to some points, but there will be no off trail bushwhacking.
4) Teams may register each member individually by a captain creating the team name-team members can then choose to join open teams. Captains can also close teams so that a password is required to join that team.
5) Join In! This is a race designed for first time orienteers, avid racers, and just for fun adventurers! Can you and your team take home the 1st Place?!
