It all starts tomorrow!
Make sure to check the Orienteering Details page for directions, start windows, and information about each day. Here are a few tidbits and useful information:
- No assigned start times on Saturday and Sunday. We'll just be making sure you start with appropriate separation between other runners on your course.
- You'll want leg covering for the forest events. You won't need leg covering for Bisbee (Wednesday) and UA + Reid Park (Thursday).
- If you get a cholla ball stuck to your leg DO NOT try to remove it with your fingers! Then you'll just have a cholla ball stuck to your fingers. Instead, with your map in one hand and your compass in the other, carefully pluck the ball off. Alternatively, carry a comb with you.
- Yes, we're in the desert, but it can rain and there are big differences between night and day temperatures. Bring some layers, especially for early in the morning. Keep in mind that it will also be cooler on the Rt 83 maps (Saturday & Sunday) which sit a couple thousand feet higher than the city.
Still have questions? Please email Cristina Luis.
Have fun! See you in the desert!
