This activity will be on a new expanded map. For those who've done previous events here, the former sprint standard map has been redrafted to a forest standard and expanded to include new terrain. Come check it out!

Location, Parking, and Map
The start/finish location is on Postill Lake Rd a short distance past the intersection with Farmers Dr. See the pin on the map below.
This area is popular with off-road vehicle users and there is a significant trail network. Keep your ears open for ATVs and dirt bikes.
You may hear gunfire. This is from an informal shooting range further up the road well north of the map. The firing direction is away from the map, so no worries!
Beginner: 2.0 km -- A loop that stays mostly on trails except for a short off-trail section in the second half. Navigation is straightforward.
Intermediate: 2.9 km -- Some off-trail travel and route choices. Most controls are near trails or solid handrails and catching features. A few harder controls toward the end.
Advanced: 4.6 km -- Significant off-trail travel and route choices with some controls in detailed terrain away from trails.
Please stay home if you have any symptoms of COVID-19 or illness.
