  • Schedule: Please note that we are following a NON-STANDARD SCHEDULE for this event.

    11:00 am to 1:00 pmRegistration and Starts. (You can register and start at any time during this window. Start early if you want to try multiple courses, or if you expect to take a long time on your course.)
    10:45 am & 11:30 amBasic Beginner Instruction will be offered at 10:45 am & 11:30 am in the vicinity of the Registration table.
    4:00 pmAll courses close at 4:00 pm. (We'll start picking up controls at 4:00 pm. Out of consideration for the meet volunteers, please check in and download at the Finish no later than 4:00 pm even if you haven't completed your course.)

  • Courses: This meet will offer standard Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced courses. You can find an explanation of the orienteering course color scheme at our FAQs page.

    - The Beginner courses (White and Yellow) will be suitable for Beginners of all ages -- kids, adults, families, etc.

    - Participants competing for a Rocky Mountain State Games medal must register and complete their course as an individual.

    - Recreational / non-competitive participants may register and complete their course either as an individual or as a team. (Teams of just two or three people work better than large teams.)

    - Adults may register for a younger age group category if they want to run a course that's longer or more advanced than the one designated for their actual age (e.g., a 36-year-old male can register for the M-21+ category rather than M35+, in order to run the longer Blue course instead of the Red course).

    - Juniors may register for an older age group category if they want to run a course that's longer or more advanced than the one designated for their actual age (e.g., a 15-year-old female can register for the F-18 category rather than F-16, in order to run the Brown course instead of the Orange course).
