Courses

5 courses will be available, and have been designed and set by Andreas Johansson, NEOOC Club Member. This time, he’s focused on using fewer controls than he normally prefers (if you ran Kenston in August, you get the idea…), so the key will be to navigate longer legs in between each control, and make both strategic and tactical decisions around the course (especially for GREEN and RED). Water will be provided on the GREEN and RED courses.

Andreas worked with a local Boy Scout, Jack Wilk, to design and set the WHITE course, as part of Jack’s requirements for the Merit Badge for Orienteering. You’ll remember Jack as the most excellent starter from the spring event at Kenston.

  • WHITE – 10 controls – 1.7 km
  • YELLOW – 9 controls – 2.3 km
  • ORANGE – 8 controls – 2.8 km
  • GREEN – 9 controls – 3.7 km
  • RED – 10 controls – 5.0 km

All distances are as measured using our course design software, Purple Pen, and are as “the crow flies”. Typically, it’s wise add an estimated 20-30% depending on your skill / stamina / map skills.
