Electronic punching on all courses
What is course climb?
Determine the "optimum route" that an orienteer would take on the course. Measure its length in meters. Note that this length will generally be 5-10% longer than the posted course length, which is the straight line distance for the course. Then count how many contour lines this route crosses going uphill. Multiply this number of contour lines by the contour interval in meters. This "climb" should normally not exceed 4% of the optimum route distance.
(% = climb/length * 100)
If you plan on bringing a large group of people (more than 10), please let us know at least one week ahead of time so we may have enough maps available. Please specify which course(s) and how many maps.
