Come orienteering in the beautiful woods of Noon Hill from September 12-27, 2020.
Courses were designed to minimize repetition of legs so come and do more than 1 course. And while you are there, consider catching the view from atop Noon Hill, or stopping by scenic Horn Pond.
Parking is in the small dirt lot at approximately 20 Noon Hill Rd. If the parking is full, please do NOT park along Noon Hill Rd except at clear parking areas. Consider coming early/late in the day or during the week.
Start/Finish with instructions for QRienteering are on the edge of the lot, close to the big metal gate. Controls will be marked with orienteering flags as well as QR codes. You can self-time/self-report, use your smart phone to scan the QRienteering codes, or use a GPS tracker.
Download course maps. [Note: Controls won't be set until Sept. 12!]
Consolidated results (both self-timed & QR-code) will be posted soon after this event ends.
These courses are available on NEOC's Routegadget (Regular Courses, Score-O and GetEmAll) — share your route!
Garmin watch users can also use O-range.
Instructions for O-range: Set up watch with O-range website (see get started). Then choose Public Courses, and "Noon Hill BYOM." Then with your watch connected to your phone, open O-range (on watch) and open Settings >> Load Course. Make sure that O-range is set to 'Score-o" mode or "regular race" on your watch, depending on which course you choose.
From South Street in Medfield, turn southwest onto Noon Hill Road ("Noonhill" on Google Maps). Road becomes gravel at stream crossing; about 0.1 mile farther, dirt parking area on left.
NEOC events are held rain or shine.
(Ski-O events may be canceled if snow is poor.)
