Dorothea Dix Sprint June 27, 2021

Filed under: Latest News by Gheorghe Fala on June 18th, 2021

On June 27, we will be holding an Open Sprint orienteering event at Dix Park in Raleigh. Everyone is welcome. We will not be offering beginner classes or instruction, but some courses are easier by virtue of being shorter. For those new to orienteering we can provide textual control descriptions. Register near the gazebo on Umstead Drive (35.771244, -78.661292) 125m west of Hunt Dr.

Please be aware there are controls around the cemetery, which is out of bounds. The cemetery has black bars on the map and has physical white posts on its border. Please be respectful of the cemetery. Do not run inside the white posts; even to cut corners.

There will be three courses, Short (1.5km), Medium (1.8km), and Long (2.4km), on the west side of Dix near the buildings and cemetery we don’t use often. Choose any combination of courses you wish. If it’s hot you may wish to run shorter or fewer courses.

Sign up by noon on Saturday, so we know how many maps to print. Registration is closed.

  • Choose your arrival time slot between 9:30 AM – 12:00 PM
  • When you choose an Arrival Time Slot you should arrive within the 1/2 hour after its starting time.
  • Limit of 10 registrations per half hour time slot
  • Courses will close at 1:30pm.
