We're excited to offer the second events of our Flagstaff summer series. On Saturday, August 14, we're offering a 2-hour Score-O, a 3-hour Bike-O, and a 5-hour Adventure Race in the hills and washes in Fort Tuthill Park. The vegetation is mostly open pine forest with some areas of thicker brush. Don't worry, our maps highlight areas where there's a higher concentration of vegetation. In the Score-O, participants have up to two hours to visit as many "destinations" as they can. In the Bike-O, participants have up to three hours to again visit as many destinations as they can. In the adventure race, we combine the two events to make a multi-sport race.

To continue precautions due to the corona virus, we will take special steps to ensure our participant's safety (see below). We hope you'll consider joining us for a small diversion in the cool temperatures of the forest near Flagstaff.

Pre-Registration and Fees

We request that you pre-register for the Fort Tuthill events here. While pre-registration is not required, those who pre-register will get a break on the registration fees. By pre-registering, you give us an idea how many maps we need to print. Some on-site registration is available, but we can't guarantee a map for those who don't pre-register.

In order to promote pre-registration for our events, the Club has a graded pricing structure. Participants who pre-register for the event will benefit from our priority pricing. While on-site registration is still available, pricing for on-site registration is more expensive. We'll print some extra maps for each of our events, but we cannot guarantee a map for those who do not pre-register.

Pre-Registration is open until Thursday, August 12 at 11:59 PM. After the pre-registration closes, you can still try your luck and register on-site. We will have pre-printed maps for everyone who pre-registers. We cannot guarantee a map for those who register on-site.

Parental Consent:

Parental Consent Now Required (Click here for more information)

All participants under age 18 are now required to have a signed parental consent form on file with the club. You can complete the form before the event and either scan it and send it to us by e-mail or bring it with you to the event.


To make this event as safe as reasonably possible in the current COVID-19 environment, we are taking the following measures:

  • Individuals or family units should maintain a six-foot distance between other groups/individuals at all times.
  • Team sizes are limited to 6 people or less.
  • The registration/pay station is largely self-serve. We highly recommend bringing exact change to minimize the exchange of money.
  • We will have a hand-washing station on a table adjacent to the registration table. Please wash hands before and after registering/signing waivers/paying/picking up score cards and clue sheets. Please also bring your own hand towel for that purpose.
  • We will not have water on the courses. We also will NOT provide our usual complementary snacks and drinks at the Start/Finish area. Bring your own snacks and water for a full day of orienteering.
  • We will not have a beginners’ clinic.

What to Bring:

Whistle Mandatory for all.
Available for purchase for $1.00.
Compass Available for rent for $1.00.
Water bottles. There is no water on the course. We strongly encourage you to bring your own water bottles or a camelback.
Sunscreen While shade is available on the course, we still recommend using sunscreen for the events.
Sturdy hiking shoes and long pants Recommended. You may encounter thick vegetation and loose terrain.
