NAKKERTOK FALL FUN RUN

AT NAKKERTOK SOUTH

ON SUNDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2016 AT 1 p.m.

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 numbers at 200.

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.
