HVO/WCOC Winter Series
2022 / 2023

Orienteering_in_the_snow_IMG_3436_C.JPG

What
Once again, HVO and WCOC are pleased to host a series of nine bare-bones, time-yourself orienteering races this winter. As with last year, most events offer a Brown, Green and Red course, and participants download the maps from a link posted on HVO’s website. Control flags will be out in the woods for at least four weeks and the events overlap some weekends so you can do two in one day/weekend if you want. You run whenever you want while the flags are out. The races are honor system based with no boxes/punches on the controls, just touch the flag (no remote visual punching!). No beginner’s courses will be available.

In case of major snow falls, revised dates may be considered and posted.

How
Maps and additional instructions can be downloaded from HERE 
a few days before the controls are in the woods.

Results
Participants can time themselves and can upload their results directly to the respective Attackpoint.org event pages. Posting splits and GPS tracks are preferred, but not required.

Important
Each participant in any or all of the Winter Series events assumes full responsibility for any and all injuries, losses and damages that he or she incurs while attending or participating in the Winter Series event.  Downloading of any map constitutes agreement to the waiver which is available on the download site.
