CROC Member Training, Spring Series
Build fitness and sharpen your navigating skills (or just have fun) at these training events. Orienteering courses will often 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 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.
Urban Orienteering-South Downtown Portland
Practice urban orienteering, with tips from some CROC experts, in the "Halprin Open Space Sequence," a small, pedestrian-friendly area of south downtown Portland featuring parks and fountains linked by pathways.
Start times are any time between 10 am and 11 am. FOR A MASS START experience, plan to start at 10:30. Meet in front of the Keller Auditorium on SW 3rd between Clay and Market Streets. There are lots of transit options to get to this location, and downtown Portland offers lots of amenities for after the event!
