Detailed 2015 Goldrush Notes, now updated to reflect adjusted ultra course for high heat expected. Please read carefully to prepare for the meet! A model map will be included in your packet.
Veteran’s Park is one of the very first CTOC maps, probably first mapped before 2000. Willow Lane first mapped in 2004 by CTOC members. Last updates in 2014.
Gold Rush first mapped in 2007 by Alexey Zuev. Last updates in 2014.
For those new to orienteering, the maps are more detailed than a normal topographic map. A quick guide at the OUSA website can be found here.
Tentative Course Statistics (final maps may change):
Friday Sprint: 1:5000, 2.5m contours
Saturday Ultra-Long: 1:10000, 5m contours
Mass start at 9am. 5 hour time limit.
Keep in mind there is no cell coverage in Idaho City, except for a small booster station right at the visitor’s center in town. You should not expect any coverage on the map while orienteering.
Sunday Middle: 1:7500, 5m contours
