General Jeb Stuart

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED

On Friday, Dec. 8, Manassas staff informed QOC that they would not issue a permit for our event. We hope to reschedule this event before long.

QOC invites you to the historic Stuart's Hill section of Manassas National Battlefield Park once again! Stuart's Hill terrain is more open, with large fields rare for our venues but also with woods of all degrees of runnability. Event timing is our standard: register any time between 10:45 - 1:15, start any time between 11 - 1:30, and be back before 3pm.

Course lengths are now posted below and comments will by Sunday. For those of you thinking of moving up a level, this is probably a good event to go for it, since the park is fairly flat and constrained, so you may enjoy running on a course that is a bit longer than your usual.

Youth groups or other large groups planning to attend this event: make sure to let the Event Director know in advance about your group so that we can coordinate pre-registration for your group; the group registration and waiver form is part of the information on our Group Leaders page.

Nearby Attraction: The park's Henry Hill Visitor Center, located at 6511 Sudley Road, Manassas, VA, will be open from 8:30am - 5pm, and it's free. This museum has both static and dynamic displays, plus a 45 minute movie ('Manassas: End of Innocence') focusing on the Civil War battles that took place here, including over the terrain covered by our orienteering courses.

Please note the following about this park:

  • Good news! This national park no longer charges any entrance fee.
  • Climbing on cannons and monuments is not allowed.
  • Pets must be kept on a leash.
  • Hunting for relics is strictly forbidden.
  • Map scale and sizes will be posted closer to the event date.

Important Notes
  • At the event, we can only accept payment in cash or check; online, you may use a credit card or PayPal account.
  • If you have access to a smartphone, you may become a member at the event by joining online via this webpage (which also explains the member benefits). Membership is completely optional. If you wish to join or renew, we strongly recommend joining (or renewing) online before the event rather than at it to save time and because it's easier.
  • Most of our events use an 'epunch' timing chip for electronic timing. Individuals or groups without their own epunch pay a higher entry fee (see above), which includes the loan of an epunch for that event. Loaned epunches that are lost incur a $40 replacement fee. Epunches (also known as SI-cards or finger sticks) are usually available for sale at each event as described here.
  • Former QOC members who have let their membership lapse pay non-member fees.
  • Compasses are available at no charge, but if lost incur a $15 replacement fee.
  • Please provide collateral (driver's license or car keys) when borrowing a compass or epunch.
  • For additional safety, whistles are available for sale at $1/each.
  • Free beginner instruction is always available - just ask at the registration table.
