Course Notes
Things seemed pretty dry. I did not try to cross any bogs but it was evident we are not dealing with high water levels. Black Xs should be regarded as possible hazards such as dumps of glass or barbed wire fencing. Please be careful.

Results from the Genesee Valley Park event are now available on the results page.


There will be an orienteering event this Sunday, April 26 starting at the Roundhouse shelter in Genesee Valley Park.

A white course and 2 sprint courses will be offered by course setter Mike Lyons. The white course is beginner level. The sprint courses are short in length and mostly in open terrain, to challenge competitive runners to move and make decisions quickly. But they can still be challenging to those not up to sprinting! Starts are from 12 to 2 PM. Please use the Online Registration link on the side for the event or register at the event.

We will be offering two Sprint courses and a White course on Sunday all are variations on the courses that were used for the US Nationals last fall. The Red Sprint is 2.8k and 19 controls, the Orange Sprint is 2.1k and 15 controls and the White course is 1.9k and 13 controls. All of the courses cross one or more park roads; despite the low posted speed limit and likely light traffic, participants should exercise caution when crossing.
