Groton State Forest Orienteering Challenge - June

It does not have to be rugged. It does not have to be an endurance event. But, it can be both. The challenge is an activity of cross-country navigation involving both route planning and navigation using a map and compass to reach check points (CP’s). Part of the challenge is the actual planning of a route, following the intended route, finding the CP’s and returning to the start/finish line by the prescribed time. Each CP is worth points.

Orienteering
5 hours
Solo Beginner Friendly Nature Out & back Rolling Trail

This is a rain or shine offering that is uphill, downhill, along trails and into the bush. 20 CP’s will be set in a prescribed area and marked on a map. Think of this activity as a seek and find in the woods with a few controlled variables. For instance, you will be given boundaries (typically trails) and we note on the map a couple of “reset” locations (think trail junctions or a obvious landscape feature).

The number for participants for the race is capped to 50.
