Active Cambridge and Stars Orienteering are bringing CUAR back to Galt in 2016 for our 4th year. Join the fun on 24th April 2016. This year we will be exploring areas of Galt never used by CUAR.

This course is for everyone including experienced orienteers, people who love to run and those who just want to get out and have a fun experience in a great atmosphere. Here is a great video describing the race from Get Out There Magazine:

Race Format

Teams will have a two hour time limit to visit as many checkpoints as possible in any order. In addition to the urban checkpoints, there will be three optional navigation courses in three parks in Cambridge (about 1km course in each park). At the end of the race, teams will receive 1 playing card for every checkpoint reached and 2 playing cards for every navigation course completed. Teams will be ranked based on most checkpoints completed, and the best poker hand. Shortest distance to obtain 'one hand of cards' (i.e. 5 points ) is about 5km. To complete the full course ( all controls + 3 navigation courses ) will be aproximative 14km. Anything in between and your team will be ranked.

9:40-9:50 Pre-race briefing. Everyone must be in attendance.
