Empire Orienteering Club and Orienteering USA invite you to create your own Adirondack Adventure in New York's beautiful Lake George region. We'll have two days (sprint and long distance) on a new map of Camp Wakpominee (Boy Scout Camp) and one day, with middle-distance and Trail orienteering, at Moreau Lake State Park, site of the 2010 2-Day Classic Championships and the 2012 Billygoat Race.

Team Trials: The U.S. Team has chosen the individual races as their Team Trials. The team to represent  the U.S. at the 2013 World Orienteering Championships in Vuokatti, Finland, will be announced after Sunday's event. Please see the Team Trials page for more about Team selection.

To make things even more interesting, Team Canada will also use this event as its Team selection race for 2013. Come watch the best racers in North America challenge the southern Adirondack terrain!

Travel Considerations

NOTE: There are bus rides to start every day (sprint, middle, and long only).

Please note when making travel arrangements that each day's event is remote from parking. Everyone must ride a bus each day to the event center:

  • On Friday (sprint) at Camp Wakpominee, the bus ride is about 15 minutes from parking; the walk to start from the bus drop-off is minimal, less than 5 minutes. Event center/registration desk is about a 5 minute walk beyond the bus drop-off. You can drop off after-race clothing in the building here.
  • On Saturday (middle) at Moreau Lake*, bus ride from parking will be approximately 15 minutes, and the walk to start includes a hike of 1.6 km with 150m climb (allow approximately 25-50 minutes for the walk). Clothing drop/return are near start; you are responsible for remembering to retrieve clothing you drop near the start.
  • Trail orienteering will take place near the parking area and lake in the afternoon on Saturday.
  • On Sunday (long) at Camp Wakpominee, as on Friday, the bus ride is about 15 minutes; the walk to start from the event center is approximately 1.1 km with 65m climb (allow 15-40 minutes).

Plan to allow most of an hour to get from parking to start on Saturday and Sunday; less for those who jog/run to warm up. 


  • Finish location for Sprint and Long at Camp Wakpominee is close to the event center, which has shelter to protect post-run clothing and bags you might wish to drop off; clothing worn to the start will be returned to the event center. Download is close to the finish/event center.
  • Finish for the Middle at Moreau is relatively near the remote start and requires a hike and bus ride back to parking and Trail O; any extra clothing you wear to the Middle start will remain nearby for you to collect after your run. If you forget and leave it near the start it will not be returned to parking until the start and finish crews leave. Download for the Middle will be at the pavilion near parking after you leave the bus (subject to change).

*There is a $6 per vehicle entry fee at Moreau Lake, applicable on Saturday; we suggest you carpool if you can. There is no additional parking fee for the events at Camp Wakpominee. We are negotiating with various groups about food vending at the event centers, but nothing is set as yet.

See the Locator Maps page for an overview.
