Date: Saturday, September 13
Registration starts at 7:00 PM
Mass start will be at 8:00PM
Registration and start will be at the Boy Scout shelter, just West of the Amphitheater. Type in 38.580673,-90.42172 in Google maps and it is the green arrow.
In this map and compass running event, everyone will start at the same time and will have 45 minutes (in the dark of night) to find as many checkpoints as possible. At registration, you will receive a highly detailed topographical map of Kirkwood park showing where the check points are located. Competitors of all ages will use a compass and their map reading skills to find and "punch" as many of these check points as possible. People can stay together in groups of as many as you like but everyone gets a map.
No pre registration or membership is required. All you need to bring is a good headlamp or flashlight.
This event is largely geared towards children but even experienced orienteers can enjoy the speed of park orienteering.
Price for map and entry: $5.00 per person. Price is per person, even if you are going as a group.
