There will be a 1.1 km White course, a 2.2 km Sprint course, and a 60-minute Score-O. The White and Sprint courses start any time between 10am and noon, with the courses closing at 1 pm. The Score-O will be a mass starting at 11am, with the course closing at noon. If you wish to do the sprint or the white course before the score-O, please come early so you are ready for the mass start at 11am. We will start in the parking lot just off of South Avenue, about half a block South of Highland Avenue. NOT the Vietnam Memorial Parking lot, the next parking lot south. "Look for the "O" signs.

Don’t forget to pre-register and save a buck. See “Online Registration” link to the left. Please consider volunteering. The club runs on volunteers, plus you get a free entrance fee for the day for volunteering. We still need some volunteers for a greeter, 2 more for registration, 3 more pick-up, food, and instruction.

Next event at Mendon Ponds Park.

There will be a 1.8 km (approximate) White course, a 2.0 km (approximate) Sprint course, and a 60-minute Score-O. The White and Sprint courses start any time between noon and 2 pm, with the courses closing at 3 pm. The Score-O will be a mass start at 1:30, with the course closing at 2:30. This should give ample time for anyone who wishes to do either the White or Sprint in addition to the Score-O to complete the White or Sprint and have time to get ready for the Score-O start.

The start location is the Pond View Shelter, reached via the middle entrance to the park off of Clover Street.

Always in need of volunteers, use the link on side menu to see what positions still need to be filled. Helpful when we can get the positions all covered well before each meet. Please contact Sandra if you can help out.

The Rochester Orienteering Club will host a mid-week TRAIL CHALLENGE on Wednesday, June 24th, 2015 at Webster Park starting at the Orchard Hill shelter. Instead of marking the trail with flags or marshals, participants will be given maps of the park with checkpoints noted. They choose how to reach each of these locations after the mass start. 5 kilometer and 8 kilometer courses will be available.

The challenge starts at 6:30 P.M., with on-site registration opening at 5:30 P.M. Competitors are encouraged to arrive with enough time to register and prepare. Basic navigation instruction will be available during the registration period, and following is allowed - if you follow people that know where they are going and can keep up!

Online Registration through a link on the side navigation of the website is encouraged but not required.


Had a great time yesterday at the ADK EXPO sharing orienteering with the folks who came by. We had 30 people go out on the intro course and handed out a 100 copies of our schedule. Hope to see some new faces at the next start! Thank you to all of the ROC Volunteers who helped...Don Winslow, Sandra Lomker, Stephanie Reh, Rukshana Cofer and daughter, Vince Cassano, Sean Sims, Carol Moran, Richard and Nancy Burgey, Marsha Reed, Pam Follett, and Carl Palmer.

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.

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.
