In Score Orienteering participants are given a map with a series of checkpoints called controls marked on it. Get to as many of those controls as you can within your chosen time limit. ROGAINE (Rugged Outdoor Group Activity Involving Navigation and Endurance) is the longer version of the event done by two or more partners. Points are awarded for the distance and difficulty of each control.
The one-hour event will involve relatively easier navigation to control locations that are close to the event 'arena'. In the two and three hour events participants can try to go to the far reaches of the park. Mass starts at 10 AM or 11 AM for the two and three hour events, 10 to noon for the one-hour event.
