There will be several activities at today's event:

  • White, yellow, and orange "regular" courses
  • Score course - find as many controls as you can in an hour's time; controls can be taken in any order, so choose your route wisely! 
  • Check out the 2019 Trail-O National Championships!
  • Annual club picnic - hang out after your run and socialize (please check back for more information)
  • NEOC's Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be held after the club picnic for those interested in learning more about how the club is run

More information about the Trail-O Championships at these pages (pre-registration is required to participate). Trail-O is a variant of orienteering focused on precision map reading, which provides an orienteering competition on equal terms for people of all levels of physical ability including those confined to wheelchairs. Competitors follow a trail through the terrain to the controls, where several flags are visible from the trail, and the task of the participants is to decide which flag is the correct one.

Look for the O-signs.
