A racing and training club for orienteering - on foot, mtb, skis, or in adventure races.
2015 brings the fourth summer training season for Truckee. Each Wednesday evening will have a different training course set up: 30-60 minutes depending on the course. Checkpoints will be little pin flags or mini-controls, with no punches. 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.
