Active Cambridge and Stars Orienteering are bringing CUAR back to Galt in 2019. Join the fun on the 5th of May 2019.
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:
Teams will have a two hour time limit to visit as many checkpoints as possible in any order. Checkpoints will include a mixture of interesting sites, including urban landmarks and local parks. At the end of the race, teams will receive 1 playing card for every checkpoint reached. Teams will be ranked based on most checkpoints completed, and the best poker hand. This format allows racers to run as far as they would like in two hours.
