Truckee Orienteering

A racing and training club for orienteering - on foot, mtb, skis, or in adventure races.

2016 brings the fifth summer training season for Truckee. Moved to Thursday evenings this year, we'll have a different training course set up: 30-60 minutes depending on the course. Checkpoints will be little pin flags or mini-controls, sometimes with sportident punching and sometimes just flags. Interval starts, 6pm.

Cost is $20 for the season, for any number of trainings, to cover printing and ink costs for the maps.

Information for each weeks training usually goes out by email a few days before. Registration is by lunch time each event day - just send me an email that says you're coming, so I know how many maps to print. If I don't hear from you, I probably won't have a map for you.

Any Questions? Want to get on the email list for the weekly training announcements? email me. We also have a facebook group for fancy maps and pictures.
