We will start in Dorothea Dix Park in Raleigh near the intersection of Umstead and Whiteside drive. 35.769774, -78.657912. Park in the large lot south of Umstead Drive.

We will have a fast complex sprint with 4 courses, each with about 15 – 20 controls. Two red courses, each about 2.8k and two brown courses, each about 1.8k.

In addition we will have a FoxOring Radio Orienteering course. This starts out like orienteering, however your control, the Radio Transmitter, is about 60 meters from the orienteering control. You find it by using your radio receiver. If you are doing the FoxOring course you should rent a Receiver ($5) when you register if you don’t have one.
