For those wishing to run in their age group, we will have competitive Open categories for Red, Green, Brown, Orange, Yellow, and White courses.
For juniors not competing in either the Interscholastic or Intercollegiate Championships (ie: Canadian juniors, non-collegiate juniors), we will have Junior competitive categories, too. (M-20, M-18, M-16, M-14, M-12, M-10, F-20, F-18, F-16, F-14, F-12, F-10)
If you're never tried orienteering before, or if you're not interested in being competitive, or if you'd just like to go out for a nice walk in the woods, recreational courses available at both the Fort Ebey and Lord Hill events! There is no advanced registration required to participate recreationally: just show up to the event and register!
Entry fees will be the standard for Cascade local events: $6 for club members, $11 for non club members.
There will be a recreational course available each day, with day-of-event signup. So, if you didn't sign up for the competitive stuff, or if you'd like to bring a friend, we will have courses at Fort Ebey and Lord Hill.
Saturday @ Fort Ebey, register between 9:30am and 11:30am. 3.1 km, beginner navigation level.
Sunday @ Lord Hill, register between 9:00am and 10:00am. 4.8 km, beginner / intermediate level.
(The Lord Hill registration closes earlier because you'll need to catch a shuttle up to the north entrance, and the last shuttle leaves at 10:30am).
