KNOCKOUT ADVENTURE RUN

MARCH 13-21, 2021

Burlington area - 2 courses!

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.

LOCATION #1

Lowville Park

6207 Lowville Park Rd, Burlington, ON L7P 0A6

Location #2 will be a surprise. For those planning on travelling, it is within 15 minutes of the first locations. Both courses are in the 3-4km range so can both be completed in one day.

CATEGORIES

All participants run the same course. Detailed description of age categories can be found further down the page.

RACE FORMAT

Course #1 will be a typical O-Cup style course

It will have 10-12 checkpoints including a section of 7 checkpoints (we call it a box) which participants may visit in any order. Participants have the option to skip checkpoints in the box equal to their handicap points (see below for details).

OR

A choose-your-adventure run format. Visit as many checkpoints in one hour. Checkpoints are scored based on difficulty: Green (easy), blue (intermediate), black diamond (difficult) and double black diamond (expert).

Course #2 will be 'Billygoat' style. There will be 15-20 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.
