Description

You won't want to miss this twist on a typical race. It is a cross between an adventure run, a road race, and a trail run. It will be fun and challenging for everyone.

What is the twist?

First, there will be two overlapping 3.2-3.3K loops (A and B) for the 6.5K race. If there are enough people then half the people will do loop A first then B. While the other half will do BA. The 3.3K run will complete one loop.

Second, the route will be unmarked. Instead there will be checkpoints to visit. The location of the checkpoints will be identified on a map given to you at the start. You decide the fastest route between the checkpoints. As a result, the distance depends on the route choices you make so the expected winning distance will be about 8.0K or about 4.0K

The course is on paved paths, paved trails, roads, sidewalks, grass fields, and, if you think it is the fastest route, then through some woods.

This is a fundraiser for the U20 orienteers involved in the Junior National Program. There are 40 juniors in the program in the US and 3 of those are in Indiana.

Net proceeds will help the juniors fund travel to training camps, attend the junior team trials, and cover expenses associated with the Junior World Orienteering Championships in Turkey in July 2020.

9:00 am - Registration packet pick-up begins
10:30 pm - Pre-race informational meeting for all participants
11:00 pm - Mass start

Everyone will get to keep the map they used for the race. Awards will be given to the top 3 M/F juniors (-20), top 3 M/F adults (21-39), and top 3 M/F masters (40+). If there are enough participants then the categories will be sub-divided.
