About the Event

Come test your night orienteering skills with an exciting mass start event from GrizO! Details below.

This event was originally planned to be a ski orienteering event. Due to lack of snow, it will now be run on foot! 

Time

This event will be a mass start: everyone will start at 6:30pm. Please arrive to check in and receive pre-race instructions between 6-615pm. 

Location

Start/finish outside of the Iron Griz: https://goo.gl/maps/JFHWHXjDCySy1Wv66

Equipment  We will provide specially created maps with pre-printed courses for each participant. We will also provide loaner compasses. Please return these when you are done.  As this is a night orienteering event, please provide your own headlamp.

Courses You will be able to select from three different courses for the night orienteering event: Short (~3km), Middle (~5km), Long (~7km). The courses are measured in straight lines. 

Beginner Instruction Beginner instruction will be provided by several experienced orienteers. If this is your first event, take a look at the "Newcomers" section of our website to get an idea of what to expect: https://www.grizzlyorienteering.org/newcomers .

Start and Finish You will need to check in with one of our volunteers at registration  before proceeding to the start. Our volunteers will provide you with the  appropriate map, a loaner compass if needed, and a loaner electronic  timing chip and will keep track of  who is out and doing which course. When you have found all the controls  on your course, return to the finish and check in with a volunteer  there. Even if you decide to quit your course before finding all the  controls, please check in at the finish so we do not go out searching for you.

Electronic "punching"

An e-punch records your race. At each control, you’ll dip the e-punch  into an electronic box, which will beep and flash as confirmation.  After you finish, you’ll download the e-punch at the download tent and  get a receipt that shows which controls you visited and how long you took  between each; these are your “splits.”

Part of the fun of orienteering is comparing your splits with people  who completed the same course, and discussing the routes you took!
