Type: Orienteering - Local
added by: sherpes
October 8 at Brady's Run Park. Jen Livingston has designed some challenging courses and a special relay for experienced orienteers. The beginner course is 1.8 km; novice is 3.0 km; and intermediate is 4.0 km. These may seem short; but Brady's Run has some very steep terrain. For the advanced orienteer, there is a three-leg, one-person relay. A person may choose to do only the first leg, the first two legs, or all three legs of the relay - complete instructions will be provided at the event. The length of the relay courses are 2.6 km, 2.1 km and 2.3 km. All courses will use electronic punching.
We will be at a shelter near the middle of the park; pay attention to the driving directions below (or look online at www.wpoc.org ) there is a bridge under construction. Registration and start are from 11 am to 2 pm; map fee is $5 as usual for members and $6 for non-members.
Don't forget, if you are bringing a minor who is not your son or daughter, you need to bring a waiver signed by the minor's parent (obtainable under Club Documents at www.wpoc.org ).
Take Route 376 West to exit 31 (Route 51). Turn Right onto Route 51 south and go for 2.8 miles to the entrance to Brady's Run Park. Turn Right into the park and follow the Red and White Orienteering signs to parking.
Note: Do not take exit 36 (Brighton Rd) from Route 376. There is bridge construction on the west end of Brady's Run Rd; you cannot reach the registration area from that direction. Also, parts of Wildwood Dr are in exceptionally bad shape.
Alternative route: Take Route 65 through Rochester to the Veterans Memorial Bridge. Turn Left and cross the Beaver river. Turn Right on Route 51 north for 2.2 miles to Brady's Run Park. Turn Left onto Brady's Run Rd and follow the Red and White Orienteering signs to parking.
From the Turnpike:
Take exit 10 to Route 376. Take 376 towards Pittsburgh to exit 31. Turn Left onto Route 51 south and go for 2.8 miles to the entrance to Brady's Run Park. Turn Right into the park and follow the Red and White Orienteering signs to parking.
Alternative route: Take exit 13 and go south on Route 18. Turn Right on Route 551 and go until you reach Route 376. Take 376 south to exit 31. Then proceed as above.
