Weeknight Winter Training 2018

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 and you write down the unique code to prove you made it to the checkpoint. This is a scatter format, so pick your own route and get as many controls as you can in the 45-minute time limit.

Don't forget it will be dark so it can be harder than you think!

This is a free event and everyone is welcome but make sure to bring along a torch and a pen.
