WNC Orienteering Club is proud to present its craziest, fastest paced, most unique family-friendly navigation game yet - the JAKE RUSH-O SUPER ULTRA SPRINT!
Find checkpoints in the park with just a map... as fast as you can!
This is a BEGINNER, KID, and FAMILY-FRIENDLY scavenger hunt-type game that will challenge your mind and body in a unique and exciting way!
Jake Rusher Park in South Asheville occupies just a couple of city blocks, is mostly an open, grassy field, and features a multi-level wooden playground structure in the middle.
There will be 20 checkpoints (orange and white flags) hung around the park, including the playground.
Runners will line up in corrals to be sent off THREE AT A TIME at 30 second intervals starting at 11am. Runners will get a detailed map with the flags to find IN ORDER using a supplied timing device. No navigation experience necessary!
The entire field will be on the course at the same time, zig zagging and dodging one another as everyone runs their respective courses. It will be PANDEM-O-NIUM.
When you finish your course, you can take a break and then begin your next course.
Runners will complete THREE short courses like this, each about 1km long and with increasingly complex navigation. Each course will include a MAZE to negotiate before completing each course.
The objective is to finish all three courses in as short a time as possible, your result being the sum total of your three elapsed times.
The starts window will open at 11am and close at 12 noon, allowing the last competitor to start enough time to comfortably finish their courses before we close the course and announce results at 2pm.
Average finish times for the entire event will be in the 1 to 2 hour range, and you can expect to cover 2 to 3 miles.
This event is for runners, walkers, shufflers, moseyers, saunterers, lolligaggers and lumberers alike, so don't think you have to be a "runner" to participate!
Timing and scoring will be electronic, featuring our brand new SPORTident e-punching system! Results will be provided instantly to each runner as a printed receipt, displayed in real time, and published to the web after the event.
Cost is just $20 for individuals and teams, and includes three course maps and electronic timing equipment. Be sure to register early, as we expect this event to sell out!
Come on down, bring the whole family, and experience this fun and unique navigation game! See y'all there!
