2019 Bubba Goat Orienteering

October 19 - 10:00 to 14:00

The COK will host the southeast region’s Bubba Goat on Saturday, October 19, 2019 – location TBD.

Registration, payment, location, and other details posted later this summer on the website.  Here’s the skinny (at this point in time):

What’s a GOAT event and how is it different than a regular monthly COK meet? 


Not for beginners (no white or yellow course levels / no instructions for newbies)

Participants must be advanced orange or higher:  controls off trail

Participants must pre-register.   Fees are higher than usual meets (TBD).

Everyone starts at the same time (a mass of runners are released into the wild promptly at 10AM)

Pre-printed map with controls – but, you’re allowed to skip one (which mixes things up a little)

It’s a longer course (usually greater than 7km; so please keep that in mind given your own navigational skills & physical abilities)

Results are based similar to a score-O where participants earn “points” (some of which may be “style-points” for wearing bib overalls, running with a pet possum, or in costume similar to the Soggy Bottom Boys).  A time limit of 3 to 3.5 hours is set for runners to collect as many points, based on control location, as possible (oh yeah – points deducted for going overtime – DOH!).
