On Saturday, February 12 the Rochester Orienteering Club is offering two beginner clinics at 12PM and 2PM. Interested participants can register by going to the CNC NordicFest website
The club will also offer three courses for members and the general public. There is no fee from ROC, but CNC charges $5 for a trail pass.
Beginner - 2K, 8 controls, 35m climb
Intermediate - 4K, 11 controls, 50m climb
Advanced - 6K, 11 controls, 110m climb
The event is Ski-O only! There are separate trails for snowshoes but no orienteering.
There is no online registration for anyone wanting to do the courses, however, you must preregister with the Center to attend the clinic.
The courses will be marked with regular orange and white control markers. They will not have any punches or Sportident boxes. Participants will record their own start and finish times. The event will also be listed as a Sol-O and can be accessed on the Usynligo phone app. Go to https://usynligo.no/allracesmap to learn more about this fun app.
Keep in mind that you must download the app from the internet and that there is no wi-fi access at the center so download before you leave home.
The courses will remain in place until the end of March.
Registration for the courses can be accessed from the Rochester Orienteering Club website
