Little Bennett Night-O

RouteGadget and splits on both WinSplits and Attackpoint are all now online for this event.

QOC’s annual nighttime orienteering event was held at Little Bennett Regional Park last Saturday. The rainy weather did not seem to bother anyone – as over 120 participants turned out to challenge themselves to navigate a course through the woods using only a flashlight, compass and map. A wide range of folks enjoyed the four courses carefully designed and set by QOC’s Sam Listwak – including expert orienteering athletes, adventure racers, trail runners, hikers, boy scouts and nature walkers.

Thanks to the volunteers: Erica Pifer, Jody Landers, John Landers, Michael Newman, Mark Walderhaug, Dan Tam Do, Jon Torrance, Neil Ewachiw, Ken Walker, Nadim Ahmed.
