Join us for a Labor Day weekend outing for novices, as well as experienced orienteers at the Presidio National Park on Sunday, September 1. This annual event is a big draw for groups as well as individuals from around the world. September is a great time to enjoy the views while getting some exercise and learning new or improving old skills.

White, pink, yellow, orange and long orange courses will be offered. A beginner's clinic will be available for all those who wish it. White and pink courses are suitable for beginners with no experience necessary. Yellow is for advanced beginners, a mostly trail course requiring little orienteering experience. Orange and long orange are intermediate longer off trail courses of moderate difficulty. The long orange course will cover most of the Presidio.

Event Times:
Registration 9:00 am - 12:30 pm
Starts available 9:30 am - 1:00 pm
Beginners clinics 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Event Notes: The Presidio, our newest National Park, is an ideal locale for beginning and intermediate orienteers, with a central location and relatively easy terrain, not to mention historic buildings and scenic views. Wooded areas have some poison oak, so off-trail participants should wear long pants.
