Peg Davis, Meet Director and Course Setter

Join us early on a cool morning for point-to-point courses on the lovely, nearly-studentless University of Arizona campus.  Pay once, run them all!  Ever wonder how fast you are compared to other orienteers? The “Running of the White Course” will allow you to reach your peak speed without wracking your brain.

This color map has a 1:5,000 scale with an east-west extension of 1,200 m (between Campbell and Park) and a north-south extension of 900 m (between Speedway and 6th Street).  It was begun by Andreas Haldi in 2002 and updated by Leif Anderson in 2010.  If you’d like to volunteer to help me out with registration or timing, email me from the “Contact Us”  button at the top of the page.

Schedule:

6:45 a.m. Registration opens. Beginners’ clinic starts.
7:00 a.m. Courses open.
8:30 a.m. Last time to start a course.
9:00 a.m. Courses close.
9:00 a.m. Annual General Meeting begins. Your input needed to plan the club’s future, so please attend.

Directions:  The University of Arizona campus is southwest of Speedway and Campbell. Start/Finish/Registration will be at the ramada in the park on the south side of First Street, just west of Cherry Ave and just east of Learning Services.  You can safely park in a “Zone 1” lot on a Sunday.  There’s one at the corner of Speedway and Cherry and another on Vine north of First Street.  Or park your bike right at the start!

Fees:  $4/individual, $7/team for members of any recognized orienteering club. $8/individual, $12/team for nonmembers.  Compasses rent for $1. Safety whistles sell for $1.

Friend-For-Free:  Members may invite one guest for free to this event.  To print a voucher and for details and restrictions, click here.

Every person, all courses, all meets is required to carry some type of safety whistle.  We’re keeping to this rule even when we’re in town.

Check-In:  To insure that all are safe, everyone, whether finished with the course or not, must check in formally at Start/Finish before leaving the meet site.

Newcomers:  Go directly to Registration. Ask for instructions and introductory information. To attend the beginners’ clinic, arrive before 6:45 a.m.

Route Choice Reviews:  If you finish before 9 a.m., an advanced orienteer will be available near the Start/Finish area to discuss route choices with returning participants.
