KNOCKOUT ADVENTURE RUN
It's happening, but not as you know it. 2 races, to be done in your own time, any time over (what was originally) March Break. It's not like you'll be travelling this year, so get Adventurous locally.
6207 Lowville Park Rd, Burlington, ON L7P 0A6
Location #2 will be a surprise. For those planning on travelling, it is within 25 minutes of the first locations. Both courses are in the 3-4km range so can both be completed in one day.
All participants run the same course. Detailed description of age categories can be found further down the page.
We are utilising the ScoreW format in MapRun for this race. ScoreW you say?
ScoreB is a time-limited scatter event with two sets of controls (ie of different “parity” - odd numbered and even numbered) on the same map.
Runners can run either evens or odds first and then the other.
The runner’s first block is determined by whether two odds or two evens are punched before two of the other (or stated another way, of the first three non-duplicated controls visited, two are even or two are odd).
The flip to the second block is signalled by visiting two controls in the second block in succession. (ie two odds after an initial block of evens or vice versa)
Runners don’t need to visit all evens or all odds and could just visit one block of controls.
Controls of the wrong parity in a block (ie odds visited in an even block and vice versa) do not count towards the points score. These controls are listed as “Extras” in the results table.
Course #2 will be 'Billygoat' style. There will be 22 checkpoints to be completed in the order designated, however based on your handicap, you can skip a certain number of checkpoints!
Participants have the option to skip checkpoints in the box equal to their handicap points (see below for details). The Knockout O-Cup is the final race in the 2021 Orienteering Ontario O-Cup Series.
