Event Details
Cat Rock Park is a wooded park; usual forest orienteering clothing/leg protection is recommended. There can be a lot of poison ivy in this park, but we expect that with the late snow and the early race date the poison ivy shouldn't be fully leafed out yet.

This event is part of the 2015 Boston Park Series
