Las Trampas Regional Wilderness

Golden Goat & Golden Kid?

Date: (Sat.) Oct. 22, 2022
Location: San Ramon, CA
Event Director:
Course Setter: TBD (You?)
Type: Possible 2022 Golden Goat & Golden Kid—after a 2-year absence from the schedule, we hope for the return of an extra-long "Goat" course, and a long "Kid" course, with a shared mass start; and (hopefully) regular beginner courses with separated starts (pending park approval)

Please note that fees and time limits apply. Events are typically not canceled due to bad weather.


The Bay Area Orienteering Club normally offers beginner to advanced orienteering courses, with no previous experience required. Beginners are normally welcome, with (free) beginner clinics to provide introductory information.

However, we hope for this event to be the return of an extra-long "Goat" course, and a long "Kid" course, with a shared mass start, which would not be suitable for beginners.

In addition to those courses, we hope to be able to provide regular beginner courses with separated starts. Please check this webpage later for details.

Note: This event announcement is preliminary, depending on recruiting a Course Setter and on receiving a park permit.

Information will be available closer to the event.
