BG Sprint 

Starts: Saturday, April 24, 2004 4:00 PM
Registration:  Pre-registration is optional, but requested (so we know how many maps to print) by Tuesday, April 20, 2004 11:59 PM
Start Type: Head-head forked (2 runners start together each minute on opposite loops)
Map: Mt. Tom
Organizer: William Hawkins

One course fits all levels. Depending on entry numbers (and early indications are promising), this race will be run as a two-loop race with two racers starting on opposite loops at each start time. It should be exciting for spectators.

Start, finish and loop changeover will be in front of the Lake Bray shelter, with a grassy field between the lake and the shelter serving as a natural orienteering stadium.

Note that standard rate entries must be registered online and checks postmarked by 4/10; late entries must be received by 4/20. 'Day-of-meet' entries will be accepted (subject to map availability) at a higher fee until 3:30pm on event day (4/24). However please still enter online even after 4/20 until Friday 4/23 - preprinted maps are more likely to be available if you do.

You must still send a check for your entry fees if you register online.
See the Billygoat main page for the whole story.

This event is part of the 26th Annual Billygoat Weekend
