Course Setter's Notes

By Holly Gaston

Come enjoy a set of orienteering courses on the beautiful UC Berkeley campus. Beginner, Sprint, and Middle-distance courses will be available. Sprint and Middle course participants will be challenged to navigate complicated multilevel buildings.

Given the campus venue, the courses cross roads and parking lots, so be aware of vehicle traffic.

There are also active construction zones on campus, including one adjacent to the Registration, Start, and Finish areas near Barrows Hall. The map has been updated recently to reflect this construction, but the construction areas may have shifted by the event date. Be prepared for construction zones that are larger or smaller than mapped.

The map scale is 1:3750, so distances will seem shorter than usual. The contour interval is 2.5 m. The north/south lines are diagonal instead of vertical, so be careful when orienting the map. Matej Sebo recently updated the map (thanks!).

Here are the course details:

    Course       Length     Climb   Controls
    Beginner     2.1 km      60 m      13    
    Sprint       2.3 km      75 m      14
    Middle       4.2 km     150 m      16
