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!

  • 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?

    • 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!
