Description:Registration: Pre-registration is not required. But it is helpful if you email by Thursday Sept 23 so I know how many maps to prepare. In the email, just say how many maps you would need. Each member of a team should have a map (the price is included in regular registration).

Start Time: I will try and stick to a 12:00 start time for the 4 hour. Doing this is easier if most of the participants arrive before 11:30. This also gives you more time to look at the map before you start. You may start after 12:00 on the four hour but would still be considered later if finish after 4:00. For the 2 hour, you can start any time between 12:00 and 2:00.

Getting There: The start will be at the end of the Old Post Road.
Take the Enfield exit, just north of the Halifax Airport. Go east and pass the Irving Big Stop at this exit. Take the first right toward Oldham. This is only about 500 m from the highway exit. On the road to Oldham, drive about 400 m under a power line and take the first left on the Old Post Road. Drive about 1.5 km to the end of this road.

Map: The map is a 1:10:000 top map, updated with some roads taken from google earth. I may give out printouts of these satellite images to help where the map is deficient.

The course will be mostly trail walking or running with some navigation through woods. You don't need previous orienteering or rogaining experience to participate. The main thing is some familiarity with using a compass. If you are nervous about being in the woods, then the 2 hour is probably a better option.

You can do with groups of any size, people, dogs, etc.
