Hello keg, I didn't get an email regarding the time the shuttle bus leaves the hub at fair lakes today Alex shepherd

Long Model is set up at Fountainhead Park adjacent to the main parking lot. Maps available at Reston in the room where the sport handbook is picked up or onsite at the finish of the model.

Saturday is expected to be very wet. Sunday will be delightfully cool. Expect slippery conditions.

Map Exchange: Course 1 (M18+, M30+, M35+) Occurs at the last water stop, at the bridge you will pass on the way to the start.

I just sent an email with the sprint start times and the transportation schedule as I know it. Also the Model Long is set up . Model maps will be at athlete check-in some time tomorrow and I will leave some on the finish control at Fountainhead ( adjacent to the parking lot).

Well I messed up. Everyone should have just received the long and sprint start times via email Please disregard the sprint times. They are off by two hours. I will send out a correct version non Wednesday.

Start lists will be out tomorrow afternoon. Regardless of your start time on Sunday, please be on time. Unless you ride the direct bus from Woodbridge, you must park, catch a 15 minute shuttle, check in, check your stuff, take care of personal needs, drink like crazy (its hot and humid here) , check out the finish, check out the warm-up area and walk/run 1.3 KM to the start. With a first start at 8am you will want to be on site early.

If you are driving your self allow time to get lost also.

Massive thundershowers last night so we can expect more bugs soon. Trees are fully leafed out now so visibility is variable.

If you want to use your own Sport IdentEpunch, email me the number. Otherwise, we will lend you one.

Keg Good And I had this list beautifully formatted.... First number is men's sprint, second number is men's long. 8 years ago

My apologies to all entrants. I understand there was a delay in sending out the confirmation letters. If you want to be sure you are entered, let me know. I hope to receive everyone's email from your registration today( from Fairfax2015) and send you all a quick note.

Is anyone coming from the Tysons Corner area that would be willing to carpool. Public transportation to Woodbridge or directly to Fountainhead Park doesn't work and especially not that time in the morning.

With a first start at 8am, you will want to be onsite between 6 and 7 am. There is a shuttle to catch from parking, athlete check-in, warm-up, bag drop, necessities, and a 1.3 K walk to the start. Id you want time to look at the model or explore the warm up area - allow more time.

Unfortunately that is how transportation is set up. Public transportation on Sundays doesn't run early or often enough to help you and is very convoluted... I know because I live in Woodbridge and used to work in Tysons. Even taking Metro to the Vienna Metro doesn't help. My best advice is to rent a car for the day and drive directly to Fountainhead Park. This will also give you freedom for the rest of the day.

Alternatively, is anyone else staying near Tysons Corner that would like to carpool?

I live in the Hilton McLean Tysons Corner and have no rental car. The WPFG bus to orienteering classic travels only from Woodbridge.
How do I get from my hotel to Woodbridge?

Confirmation letters are supposed to go out today. You will not see your start times as the events are still open for registration. I hope to email the start time list on Jun 23 or 26. Long O starts will be between 8-9am. Sprint O starts will be between 6-7pm. Currently Men's 45+ is the most competitive age group. The Start Chief ran that course yesterday afternoon in very humid conditions. With a morning start, on Jun 28, it will probably be humid.

Hi Athletes, I invite you to try out Sprint Orienteering on Wed Jul 1 6pm at GMU. No bugs, no forest, no uneven footing (well, some grass). You run, by yourself, as fast as you can think and execute your route between checkpoints. The checkpoints are similar to “corner of building” that you must go to in order. The total distance is 1-3 miles. Winners have the fastest times. At present, not all age categories even have 3 people. So if you really want a medal to bring back home consider adding... Show more
