These are temporary courses. Controls will be in the woods from May 9-24.
Please print your own map (see link below) and complete the courses any time you want.
Be courteous and follow "social distancing" guidelines in the parking lot and in the woods.
Please do not touch the control flags or QR codes since they are not sanitized.
Note that the ticks are out. Take precautions & check yourself afterwards.
We ask that folks do not travel beyond their local area for these activities and follow local, state, and federal policies relating to COVID-19.
Risk associated with participation is solely your own.
As of Monday, there are a few missing controls on the White (last control), Yellow (3 controls), and Orange (2 controls) courses at Nobscot Reservation. The other courses (Brown, Green and Red) are unaffected at present, aside from no control flag at the finish (but there is a QR code to scan in place).
The White, Yellow and Orange courses will be available again starting on Thursday May 14th, and all courses will then be available through the end of Saturday May 16th.
Full results will be posted on Monday (May 25), under the Results menu.
These courses are available on RouteGadget (in the Results menu). Share your route & finish time after your run! (Either upload a .gpx file or draw your route manually.)
We would like to thank the NEOC juniors for organizing the BYOM event at Nobscot Reservation.

In the meantime, check out the Youth menu above for more information on the NEOC juniors and other youth activities.
