Mendon Ponds is a Monroe County Park with over 2,500 acres of open woods, fields, wetlands and ponds. The glacially formed terrain is marked by eskers, kames, and kettle holes - resulting in some areas with intricate contouring.

The championship event is open to anyone, however, you must be a USOF member and meet citizenship, residency and club membership requirements in order to win championship awards. See USOF rules sections A-5 and L for more details. Age/Point structure is as follows:

· Ages 15, 16 or 50-59 receives 2 points
· Under 15 years of age or 60 and older receives 3 points
· A female orienteer receives 2 points, in addition to any age points.
Each team must turn in a team entry form. Team members must be finalized and forms turned in by 4:00 pm Saturday.
The Challenge Cup will match US versus Canadian relay teams. The only requirement is that team members are either all COF or USOF members.
