New Venue & New Map !

The event, which is now National Ranking Event (NRE) qualified, will take place Sunday, December 13th, 2020 and will feature classic distance courses with all classes. The terrain consists of open, rolling woodland with occasional small streams and we are confident this new venue will quickly become a favorite. All advanced course maps are expected to printed at 1:10,000 scale.

The date that registration will open has not been decided yet.

Take I-95 to exit 150 (150B from points north). Head west on Joplin Road (VA-619) and take the second right for the park entrance. Turn left 0.5 miles from the park entrance, onto Scenic Drive. Bear left at the split in the drive to stay on Scenic Dr (signs toward Turkey Run Education Center), continue for 3.6 miles, then turn left on West Gate Fire Rd to the Oak Ridge Campground. (Scenic Drive becomes one-way at that point, and you MUST turn left anyway.) Allow at least 20 minutes drive time inside the park.
Warning: do not use nav software that incorrectly suggests taking Mawavi Rd from Rt 619/Joplin Rd, or, taking Old Blacktop Road from Turkey Run Ridge Camping Area. Both are closed to through traffic.

Important Notes
  • If you wish to become a QOC member you should join online in advance via this webpage (which also explains the member benefits). Membership is completely optional.
  • Most of our events use an 'epunch' timing chip for electronic timing. Individuals or groups without their own epunch will be loaned one for that event. Loaned epunches that are lost incur a $40 replacement fee. Epunches (also known as SI-cards or finger sticks) can be purchased from online vendors 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 (such as car keys) when borrowing a compass or epunch.
  • Free beginner instruction is always available - just ask at the registration table. While COVID-19 policies are in effect, please check out instructional videos online such as those mentioned above in lieu of in-person/at-event instruction.
