Map and Course Notes
FREE FORM - Suitable for less experienced orienteers and walkers. You will receive a map that shows all of the control circles and may punch them in any order. Results will be ordered first by how many controls you found and then by the time you took to find them.
CLASSIC - Suitable for more experienced orienteers moving at a faster pace. You will receive a map that shows a standard course with numbered circles. You must visit all of the controls in numbered order. Results will be ordered by time.
TIME LIMIT - Everyone must be out of the maze by 9:45am, regardless of your start time. Controls will be picked up promptly at 9:45.
SAFETY - The corn maze is very soft ground and can also be muddy and slippery. Please wear shoes with traction and be careful. Orienteers will be racing through the maze - stay aware to avoid collisions. NO CUTTING THROUGH THE CORN!!! Please stay on the mapped paths. We risk losing this opportunity for the future if we cause damage to the maze.

Top Classic Male Individual
