US 2017 Classic Champs

The 2017 US Two Day Classic Orienteering Championships will be hosted this year by our very own club on November 11-12. We encourage all local orienteers to take advantage of this great opportunity to participate in a national event; registration is open now!

WHERE: Two new (and newly mapped) areas of the Quantico Marine Base will be used for this event. These areas are not normally ever open to the public for recreational use, and they represent some of the finest orienteering terrain among all of the 50,000 acres on the Base.
