Race Results / Foot-O / Camp Tuscazoar / 26JUN2016

Recap

The Foot-O was held at Camp Tuscazoar on a hot Sunday afternoon on June 26.   The Foot-O event started around 1 pm after the Mountain Bike Orienteers finished.  13 single/team participants attempted the Yellow, Orange, Green, Red and Brown courses.   A Hotdog lunch with fixings and NEOOC screen printing was available at the camp. Since this was the first MountainBike-O / Foot-O with a remote finish, our volunteers had to serve in multiple rolls. Thank you to all that volunteered to make this event successful.

Controls 42 and 41 were very challenging to find especially for the Yellow course Orienteers due to the myriad of foot and mountain bike trails in the area.

Mountainbike-O 2016

Sunday June 26, 10 AM

Tuscazoar Mountainbike-Orienteering

  • Location: Camp Tuscazoar
  • Dover, Ohio
  • Registration and instructions at 9 AM
  • Race start: 10 AM
  • Cost: $15 including map and hot dog lunch & snacks. Pay at the race.

How is this different than a regular mountain bike race?

This race has no course arrows or other markings. Competitors read a map to find checkpoints. The course is designed so that there are usually a number of route choices to each checkpoint. The map gives clues that will help make good route choices. An explanation of the colors and symbols on the sample map are given at the bottom of this page. Electronic timing will be used at this event! You will receive a printout of your split time for each checkpoint. Starts will be at one minute intervals. You will have the choice of an easier 3 mile race or a rugged 5+ miler.

 

Octagon Shelter XC / Twilight 6PM – 9PM

ABOUT

Choose from five courses ranging from 2.1 to 3.5 km.

Course Designer, Steve Hendrix, kept them on the short side so you should be able to complete your twilight adventure before dark. Do we need flashlights? Decide for yourself, but a thick leaf canopy + forecast cloudiness + low sun angle could make it hard to read your map.
