Maps’ scale – 1:6,000 for all courses. Maps’ size – 11x17 for all courses.
All courses are preprinted. Clue sheets are given separately.
ATTENTION !!! Courses pass the park’s main inner circle with heavy bicycle traffic. Be extra careful when crossing it. Also some courses may cross horse trails. If you see horse riders, do not approach them closer than 20 meters.
There are many 4-5 feet tall light wire fences around the park. They are very difficult to pass. Though, very often, they are poorly visible. On the map they are shown with symbol “crossable fence”. We advise to run them around. An example of such a fence will be presented at the start area. The 6+ feet tall fences are mapped as “uncrossable fences”.
