Did you try it at Night?

This is a classic point-to-point orienteering event where participants follow a course in the order set by the organizer. All controls must be found in the given order.

This is a public event, open to all, with no prior orienteering experience required. Help will be available on site for any beginners needing some tips to get started.

There will be several courses to match any ability. Easier courses will be shorter with controls placed in easy-to-find locations. Harder courses will be longer and controls will be hidden off-trail for the more adventurous participants!


  • 1. Beginner (under 2 km): An introductory course for absolute beginners. Controls located along trails.
  • 2. Basic (about 2 km): Slightly harder. Good for first-time adults. Many controls along trails but just out of sight
  • 3. Intermediate (2-3 km): Most controls are located off the trails. Map reading skills are an asset. Some bushwacking.
  • 4. Advanced (3-5 km): Controls are located off the trails. Challenging route choices. Good map reading skills required.
