Cary (sub)urban Orienteering – October 5, 2019

Filed under: Latest News by Imre Polik on May 9th, 2019

We will have our first (sub)urban orienteering event in Cary on October 5, 2019. The format will be similar to the Chapel Hill street-o event, but the landscape is a bit different. There will be a 2 and a 4-hour category, and a bike option. This is a members only event. Preregistration is coming soon.

Instead of orienteering control points I will mark certain points on the map and ask a question that you can answer there. This is not a treasure hunt, the controls won’t be hidden. The key is a careful route choice and precise execution.

The start and finish will be at the picnic shelter in North Cary park in Cary. The address is 1100 Norwell Blvd. Water and restrooms are available there.

  • 8:00 Handing out maps for the 4-hour group
  • 8:50 Pre-race briefing
  • 9:00 Start for the 4-hour group
  • 10:00 Handing out maps for the 2-hour group
  • 10:50 Pre-race briefing
  • 11:00 Start for the 2-hour group
  • 13:00 Finish for everyone (Late penalty: you lose your highest scoring control in the first minute and 1 point for each minute afterwards.)

We need to leave the shelter by 2pm as it is booked for the afternoon.
