Results for Dorothea Dix open fun event on May 1

It was a beautiful spring day for orienteering at Dix Park today. Unbeknown to us and to the Dix calendar, there was a large “Racing for Rescues 5K” run at Dix this morning with police blocking entrances until around 11:00. A very strange coincidence with our “dog bone” score-O. We were able to run the […]

Results for Lake Crabtree Sprint July 11

We had a hot and humid day for the Lake Crabtree Sprint event. The forecast scattered thunderstorms did not materialize for which we were truly grateful. Most folks found the courses sufficiently challenging for a hot summer day. The runners who tackled all three courses were generally tired by the end. Lake Crabtree has a […]

Umstead West Oct 18 – Results

We had a perfect day for orienteering on Sunday. Our originally planned open event at Umstead South was not approved as so many people are parking there because other activities such as youth sports are not happening during the Covid-19 crisis. Indeed when I went to set controls on Saturday around 2pm, traffic at the […]
