Event Format: Score

This event will be an “orienteering treasure hunt” or "choose your own adventure". Participants have a fixed time interval (60 minutes) to find as many controls as they wish in whatever order they choose. Points are awarded for each control visited. Penalties are deducted for participants who return late to the start area after their time expires.

Courses

  • Easy: "Easy" controls (trails, structures, visible features).
  • Not so Easy: Many (or all) "Easy" controls plus some harder off-trail locations.
  • Permanent:NEW Introducing the new Rockwood Park Permamnent Course. Simplified map with easy control locations but tough-to-find markers!

All Easy and Permanent controls are located in or near the paved Lily Lake/Fisher Lakes ring road. Some Not so Easy controls will be outside the ring.
