Fall 2017 Event Schedule

Unless otherwise noted, participants can register and begin at any time between 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 noon. Control flags are collected beginning at 2:00 p.m. (participants must finish the course by this time). Free instruction is available at all meets. If you would like instruction, please arrive before 11 a.m. (it's also a good idea to tell the meet director in advance that you'd like some training). If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact the meet director.

Some meets include sprint courses, which are about 2 to 3 km with a mix of beginner to advanced controls over more runnable terrain than in typical advanced courses.
