AVOC Sprint Series 2020

Sprint orienteering combines thinking and racing, primarily in urban areas such as campuses or parks. Navigation is relatively easy at a slow pace or a walk, so sprint events can be a great introduction to the sport.

The Annapolis Valley Orienteering Club (AVOC)’s third annual Sprint Series includes 5 sprint orienteering events with beginner, intermediate and advanced courses at each.

Participate in one event, or join them all! Your best 4 of 5 races will count toward overall prizes at the series finale for the top three male and female in each category (additional categories to be added if numbers warrant).
