Nakkertok Fall Fun Run - Orienteering with a twist!
By:  Nakkertok Nordic   (2012/10/31)

Brought to You by Nakkertok’s Adventure Program

WHO CAN ENTER? This event is open to all (ages 4 to 99), though we will cap the number of participants at 150.

WHAT TO EXPECT? An orienteering race with a twist. On arrival, participants make up their own teams (two to four people) and indicate which of the three courses the team wants to race. Choices are: a 30-minute course, a 1-hour course or a 2-hour course. In a mass start for each of the three courses, teams take off and use maps (provided) and their navigating skills to race around Nakkertok South in search of orienteering controls (or flags). The aim is to find as many controls as possible within the time limit. Points will be given for controls found . . . but taken away for getting back past the time limit (one point per minute)! Awards will be given once all the teams are in and times are tallied. Drinks and snacks will be provided for all participants.

HOW TO REGISTER? Advance registration is ONLINE ONLY through Zone 4.  Registration deadline is 11:59 p.m., Thursday, November 1. Race-day registration is not possible. Register by year of birth (boys and girls race together). Although members race as a team (which could have a mix of age and gender), each person registers individually and pays according to their age.

COSTS? Ages 8 and under (birth year 2004 and later): $10 Ages 9 and up (birth year 2003 and earlier): $15 ON THE DAY? Arrival: Make sure you arrive by 12:00 p.m. to sign in. Bring: A watch, appropriate clothing and footwear for running, a compass and a whistle.

WHAT’S GUARANTEED? A challenge for all ages; prizes; post-race refreshments; and a great ADVENTURE! QUESTIONS? For more information please contact Jennie Anderson at jennie29@gmail.com
