RIT Sprint Mania

What's a Sprint? Fear not if you are new to orienteering! A Sprint is an orienteering course with relatively shorter distances between flags than you would find on a traditional course and it is often done in a more urban setting like a college campus (RIT). For competitive folks a Sprint means getting around a course as fast as possible. If you're new to orienteering or not a runner you can do a Sprint course at your usual pace. In fact, you may find a Sprint course to be a great training tool for you, so don't let the name scare you away. There will also be the option of a regular beginner's course.

Once at RIT, park in Parking Lot D and follow the orange and white signs to the start of the event South at George H. Clark Gymnasium Outdoor Breezeway | Map Link

The RIT Sprint Mania will give you the option to run multiple sprints (courses) in any order with brief rest times between courses.  If you prefer to run a single traditional sprint course, you can choose to run any sprint by itself. The sprints will feature quick thinking with multiple routes to choose from navigating around buildings with stairs, ramps, short overpasses, walls, gardens, some open spaces, and even a tiger.
