Welcome to the Spring 2022 Park Orienteering Series! This year the spring series will be a set of 6 or perhaps 7 in-person events in Boston area parks.
Time: Start times are from 6:00 pm to 7:00pm on Thursday evenings
Registration: Pre-registration is required for all events no later than the Tuesday (2 days) before. Reserve your spot now for the full series or sign up weekly (space dependent). We will print maps based on pre-registration.
Courses: Advanced and Beginner. These are short courses suitable for evening races so Advanced courses will be between 1.5-3.5 km with 10-15 minute winning times, while beginner courses will be between 1-2 km. Advanced course runners earn points at each completed event, with your best 4 event results added to calculate your series score and overall ranking.
- Series Registration: $24/person or $60/family
- Individual Event: $6/person or $16/family
Results: Overall times and split-times for each checkpoint will be available online after the event. Points will be awarded on the longer course, based on 20 points for 1st place, 19 points for 2nd place and so on regardless of age or gender. Your top 4 events count towards your total points score (i.e. 80 points max).
Parking for the Hammond Pond event will be at the upper parking lot of the Shops at Chestnut Hill off Hammond Pond Parkway.
