Welcome to the Choose Your Adventure Series
This series is back for its fifth year, and will include fan favorites such as our Corn Maze and Vampire events. We'll also be returning to Whidbey Island and partnering with Northwest Trail Runs for an event at Lord Hill!
Started in 2011, this late summer and early fall series puts everyone on the same map and same course. It's up to you to choose your adventure and pick whatever route you'd like! Experienced orienteers will know this style of event as similar to a "score-o", but we're giving it a new name.
The Choose Your Adventure Series is meant to be fun, social, friendly for beginners, yet interesting for seasoned veterans. Everyone starts together, so run head-to-head with your friends or against your rivals. Who will visit the most checkpoints within the time limit? Who will run the fastest?
This format is great for beginners! With many checkpoints along trails and open areas, you'll be sure to visit a lot! And if there's one that's hard to find, don't worry, you can skip it and keep going.
For the advanced navigators, the races will be a challenging exercise in figuring out the most efficient and optimal route to try to get them all! Many of the series races will have map exchanges; once you visit all checkpoints on one map, swing back through the start/finish area and we'll give you another set of checkpoints to visit!
Afterward, we'll hang out and socialize and share routes and stories.
We're currently looking for key volunteers for several of these events, including event directors and course designers. If you'd like to volunteer or have any questions, contact Patrick at firstname.lastname@example.org. If this would be your first time volunteering for these roles, we can help you out!
