PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.  SORRY, WALK-INS ON-SITE ARE NOT ALLOWED.

As we conclude our winter GOGO season, we will do a competitive "chase." This is done in a reverse chase format. Points and times earned from this past winter's GOGO  events will determine your start time. Slower navigators get an earlier start time and faster navigators get later start times.  If the math works out with the SloCo calculation, then most participants will arrive to the finish around the same time.

Awards are presented afterwards for both the Winter GOGO Season as well as for the Chase.

ALL ARE WELCOME - hikers, runners, first-timers and old-timers.  If you are not competing but want to go out and go orienteering recreationally, come on out!.  Oh, and this is a NEW map!

The staging area will be at Woodland Pavilion at Broad Run Park in the  Parklands. There will be approximately a 600m walk from the  staging area to the start of the Chase the Penguin. The baby Penguin  (the second race) will start by the staging area.
