Orienteering Race at 285/75 Marietta
This Sunday. Â Start any time between 10-3pm
we have a special orienteering event at Palisades Park.
There will be a choice of eight (8) different courses:
Red 5.1 kmÂ Brown 3.5 kmÂ Green 4.7 kmÂ Orange 2.7 kmÂ Yellow 2.7 kmÂ White 2.5 km
and two contour-only coursesLong 4.0 kmÂ Short 2.2 km
Pick one, or try them all.
The contour-only courses will use a special map with detailed elevation lines and very little else. Test your navigation and map-reading skills by following the hills and valleys. This map has no trails to follow, no creeks to walk along; you must imagine the ebb and flow of the landscape, and match the little brown lines to the hilltop in front of you.Â The pure essence of orienteering in the forest.
There will be something for every skill level.
Come out and enjoy.
