CROC Members Training-Reed Canyon-partners

Training Series Info

Build fitness and sharpen your navigating skills (or just have fun) at these training events. Orienteering courses will focus on a particular skill such as close map-reading, remembering what you've seen on the map, and keeping track of where you are. The training series events are only for CROC members. There is no charge.


Partners exercise

Pair up with a fellow orienteer of similar fitness and ability for this exercise in maintaining map contact. You and your partner will be running the same course together, with the exception of different controls missing from each of your maps. You'll practice paying attention to your surroundings, matching them to the map as you run or walk, and then being able to quickly pick up where your partner leaves off -- even if that control may not be on your map!  


Where to Meet

Meet at SE 33rd Ave and Steele, in the NE corner of Reed's grass field. Street parking is available along Steele (see map below). Start times begin at 10 AM.


Cost: No charge for CROC Members



RSVP to Abra McNair so we'll be sure to have enough maps for you and your partner. See you there!


More about the training series

Training events will be held monthly in seasonal groups. Watch the events page for the latest information.

The training series is for club members only, who want to improve their orienteering skills, improve fitness and do some socializing. There is no cost for members for these informal events. Results will not be posted, but if you want to keep track of your time, bring a timing device and a scoring sheet will be available.
Creating an event offers valuable training itself! If you'd like to host an event, or have other questions, please contact Virginia Church.
