This Winter Madnaess event will take place on one of our maps along the Chicago River. There will be a White beginner's course, an Orange intermediate course, plus the Madnaess course for more experienced orienteerers.

This is the fourth year of the Winter Madnaess Series which features four individual races over the winter months. The format is very different from traditional orienteering as the race is a mass start. The race is broken into three parts. The first is a set of common controls where the runners go head to head. They then enter the Madnaess box which features 7 or more controls. The intent of this box is to equalize the race for all levels of skill and as such each runner gets to skip a certain amount the controls based on their age and gender. Many racers will have to visit all of them while younger or older runners will do fewer. Coming out of the box they then cover a number of common controls once again and, if planned out properly, most of the runners should finish very close to one another.

Racers will count their best three out of four results to determine overall 2011-2012 champions. For runners who are unable to get to at least three of the races to count for the total, this is not an issue as each race is a separate competition so if you can only make one then come out a try.

For beginners and kids we will have separate novice courses so bring them out.

The competition will go ahead through rain or snow.
