      Course setter's notes

      Greenbelt Park, Sunday October 6, 2002

      Course Length Climb

      Blue 13.7 km 350 m
      Red 6.7 km 225 m
      Green 5.65 km 135 m
      Brown 3.9 km 125 m
      Orange 2.9 km 65 m
      Yellow 1.5 km 45 m
      White 1.5 km 25 m

      Notes:

      1) Greenbelt Park has many `dense' areas, where use of gaiters and long =
      pants is especially encouraged.
      2) There are many checkpoints (57 total) in the woods. Pay attention to =
      your control numbers.
      3) Blue course is different this time. It is very LONG and VERY challeng=
      ing. Only experienced runners (those who have run blue courses before) will =
      be allowed to run it. Besides its' length and challenge the course includes =
      these exciting special features:
      a. Two `boxes' - where controls may be collected in any order, and, =

      b. A memory leg – a short loop with several checkpoints where runner=
      s must voluntarily hide their maps and use only the ones posted at the memor=
      y control sites.
      More details will be available at the event registration. Since the course =
      is lengthy, it will take at least 2h to finish it. Runners are STRONGLY advi=
      sed to start before 1 p.m.
      4) There will only be a few water stations on the course, which will be =
      indicated ONLY on the master maps (not on the clue sheets).

      I wish you all a good time and successful Orienteering in Greenbelt.
