Box Canyon Score-O -- Mar. 8
Beautiful Box Canyon in the foothills of the Santa Rita Mountains will be the site for a two hour score-O. The running is good through tall grass and on trails. The climbs are long but yield spectacular views of the valley below and the mountains beyond. Come join us as we return to Box Canyon after a hiatus from this tremendous locale.

How You Can Help Make Our Events Happen!
The Tucson Orienteering Club is a non-profit organization which depends on member-volunteers who give a whole lot of their time behind the scenes working to run the club, make the maps, get the permits, set courses, and run the meets that you enjoy. If you don't yet feel ready or have the time to take on any of these key volunteer activities yourself, you can still become a valuable part of making our events happen just by offering to help the meet director during a small part of the time that you show up for the event.
