Zer-O Series - Pearl District

Description

This Zero-O training event features a short course at the Pearl District. The course is 2.3 km and flat. The course runs through the Pearl District focusing on 3 parks (Jamison Square, The Fields, and Tanner Springs) plus other interesting elements of the Pearl such as alleys and pedestrian areas.

Participants MUST obey traffic laws and comply with pedestrian crossing signals.  The map has marked NW Lovejoy as uncrossable except at designated pedestrian crossings and signals.  Remember, this is NOT a race; safety is the most important consideration.  There are a number of controls in close proximity, so careful map reading will be needed.  The course is designed to allow participants to cut out groups of controls if a shorter course is desired.

 

Cost: No charge!

 

Schedule

Starts will be open from 6:15. Late comers are welcome but control pick up will begin about 20 to 30 minutes after the last start or 7:15, whichever comes first.

 

Where to Meet

Meet in Tanner Springs Park; meet along NW 11th near, but not at the corner of NW Northrup.

 

Beginners

As at all CROC meets, beginners are welcome! Participants or the meet director will be happy to give you tips for getting started in the sport.

 

RSVP

Please RSVP to the meet director at the email below by 6pm the day prior to this event so that we have a map for you. If you do not RSVP, we can't promise you'll get a map.
