April 22 at South Umstead

Yes, we'll be orienteering in Umstead this year as well!!! Hard to believe it, I know. I am really looking forward to it though.

Got the courses designed and approved by the park already. Just to give you a heads up, I decided to try something different from I've been doing before. The advanced courses will have lesser number of controls, but several really long legs with lots of route choices. For example,

  • Red will have 12 controls and three (!!!) 1KM legs, 6.8KM
  • Green - 10 controls, one 1KM leg, 5.1KM
  • Brown - 9 controls, three 0.6KM legs, 4.1KM
If you can, try Red, it should be very interesting.

Another thing is that there will be a remote start for advanced courses, so people would be able to spend more time behind the river in the "juicy" part of the park.
