Cat Mountain Score-O
Time & Location
About the Event
Location: Cat Mountain (In Tucson Mountain Park)
Course: This is a score-O, so you can visit as many of the approximately 25 controls as you wish, as long as you are back within 2 hours. About half the control points form a nice trail loop of about 3.7km. All these controls are very near the trail. So a novice adult should be able to complete that loop in about two hours. The remainder of the controls are well off-trail. Total distance for advanced runners to get all the controls will be 8.1 km, and will require mostly off-trail travel.
Map: 1/10,000-scale maps will be provided.
!!! There is a 20 minute walk to the start area.
7:30 - 8:30 Check in.
8:00 First chance to start.
9:00 Last chance to start.
11:00 Courses close and control retrieval begins.
