If anyone needs a ride from DC to the long orienteering run on Sunday then let me know. I will leave from the Duo Hostel, located at 1223 11th St NW, Washington, DC 20001 on Sunday morning. I won't come back after the run, but at least you have a ride there.

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.

Orienteering

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.

Hi All,

Is there anyone going to the Sprint orienteering from Springfield way? as I am trying to get there after doing the Ultimate Firefighter event but public transport looks to be very long and complicated.
Any help or suggestions would be greatly welcome

Many thanks Al

Craig Luecke We are preparing to announce free bus rides on the Fairfax County Connector bus system. Looks like if you take the 402 (blue) to the 306 GMU (green) that will get you there. Here is the map I found this. Show more Loading content, please wait. 2 years ago

Alan Smith Cheers Craig for the info and help. Looks like the 306 may not run after 4pm but I will investigate further... But good news as I will probably be getting a connector bus from Reston down to Fair oaks to get the hub bus to GMU on track days 2 years ago

Athletes, you may or may not have received your athlete confirmation letter tonight. As one of the Senior Games Managers and an athlete in the games I received one that was not intended for me (another athlete’s name). Something has happened in the registration software program and the staff here is working through the problem as we speak. Please stand by and they will post a notification once a resolution is found. We apologize for the confusion.

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.

Graziella Scorza Soares Ferreira Hi Keg! I would like to use mine. To what email should I send the number? I did not find your email address in your profile that appears in the group. 2 years ago
