Lightpole Orienteering

Lightpole Orienteering returns for Thursday evenings to help keep your navigation and running tuned up over the winter. The goal of these training events is to collect as many designated lightpoles (you write down the unique code to prove you made it to the checkpoint) as you can in the 45-minute time limit. Don't forget it will be dark so it can be harder than you think!

Everyone is welcome but make sure to bring along a torch and a pen. If possible please RSVP to Nick Dale at This email address is being protected from spambots.
