(Another) Seasonal/DIY Course in the Hanover-Lebanon Area
Where: This course is in Lebanon, NH, starting on the south side of DHMC (Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center), extending southward in the Burnt Mtn – Quarry Hill area, owned by Dartmouth College. Closest parking lot coordinates are 43.6717112 (N), -72.2735142 (W), labeled in Google Maps as “Boston Lot Hospital Trailhead”.
What: Red course (15 controls, 5.2km), Green course (11 control subset of the Red, 4.2km), Brown course (8 control subset of the Red, 2.7km), or choose your own subset of controls from the Red course. Please use the linked course maps for printing. Regular control markers are used. Note: These are not novice courses.
Cost: No charge
When: Run it at your convenience between Wednesday June 24 and Wednesday September 30, 2020, as often as you wish.
How To Do It: Download the map for the course of your choice, grab your compass, and head for the woods. For those who wish to monitor their times by control, QR codes that can be read by cell phone are provided at each control marker (see explanation below). Otherwise it is all DIY – no touching or punching necessary.
If you wish to track your times, you must have or download the free iOrienteering cell phone app. Next you must select a course by scanning the QR code for the Red, Green, or Brown course here or from your printed map. Then, when running the course, you scan the QR code available at each control point (including start and finish). See www.iOrenteering.com for more details. Note: If you choose to track your performance with this app, the control numbers will show up as 101-115, corresponding to the control markers’ labels of A61-A75.
When on the course, please honor “social distancing” as a safe practice during this summer of COVID-19.
Note: You may encounter mountain bikers on trails.
