All courses finish in the Arena.

Courses 1 and 2 have flagging on one or more legs.

Elite courses have a spectator control and spectator leg through the arena

There are significant logged areas, but they have been well-mapped. There are also areas of dark green which fit the description of “fight” in terms of runnability.  Vegetation (runnability/visibility) still needs to be reviewed for growth over the past two years.


The map area covers a hillside. Contours are very reliable.  There are some areas of complex contours.  Careful navigation to use the best areas of runnability could be important.


There is a trail network on the map.
