Event Rules: 

  • This is a team event. All team members must register. Minimum size is 2 and maximum size is 4.  Cub Scout adults do not count toward team size.
  • Teams must start together, stay together, and finish together. This is a safety procedure. You must check in together at the end of the race so we know all participants are off the course.Time will not be recorded until all members of the team are across the finish line.
  • Maps will be handed out at start time. Each team will only be issued one map and score card.
  • Teams have 2 hours to complete the course.
  • Controls can be visited in any order. The goal is to score as many points as possible in the allowed time. Controls are assigned different point values based on their difficulty from 5 points to 30 points. It is highly unlikely you will be able to find them all during the time allowed.
  • Crossing the finish line after the specified time limit will result in a penalty of 5 points per minute.
  • All team members must have full canteens or water bottles. There will be water refill points along the course.
  • The use of GPS or other electric navigation aids is not allowed. Phones may be carried for emergencies.
  • Teams may not collaborate or share information with other team members except for safety or medical emergencies. Teams are expected to help others in emergency situations. Adults with Cub Scouts should focus on ensuring the safety of their group.
  • Tampering with course, control points, interfering with other teams, disrespect for camp or personal property, disrespect for wildlife, or unsportsmanlike conduct will result in disqualification.
