Sippo Lake XC / Classic / Sunday May 22, 11:30AM – 1PM

ABOUT

Join us for a classic cross country event at Sippo Lake Park – a small venue, with plenty of challenges for all. WHITE, YELLOW, ORANGE, GREEN, and RED courses will be available.

Located between Canton & Massillon just a short hop off of I-77. Our search for new venues was rewarded when club member Ivan Redinger laid the groundwork for a positive relationship with Stark Parks. This is a real orienteering playground with a real diversity of landscape types.

Mapper Bob enjoyed creating our newest map because at every turn there was something new and different. The map forms a horseshoe around the north side of Sippo Lake. A complex area of hills and depressions sweeps down to the eastern shore. The north side is the location of a beautiful new library, museum & educational center that will serve as our start and finish. If bathrooms are important to you, be ready for the best of all our locations!

The western portion is like a bunch of unique rooms, including areas of marsh, open forest, flat prairie, intricate hills, dense thicket and an amazing wildlife rehabilitation center open for a visit. All areas of the park are connected by an extensive trail system accessible by foot or bike. This will be a cross-country style event with 5 courses and electronic punching.

So, join us for this historic first event and receive a map suitable for framing!

  1. I am new to orienteering and missed the beginners course last month. If I register for the Sippo Lake event, will there be anyone to help me get started?

    1. Absolutely! We’d be happy to get you going with the basics. Look for one of the club members in our distinctive jersey, or ask at registration!
