Organizer: Tim McLaren (Event Director)
This is the ninth event of the TNT Series. Thanks Tim for a challenging route planning event!
|TNT #9 Results
According to Organizer Tim, Lakeview is full of bendy roads to challenge your navigational skills. There are also a few straight blocks but I don't want it to be too easy so I've made running along these straight roads and their sidewalks out-of-bounds for this TNT. You can cross these dashed purple lines, but you cannot travel alongside them on the road or sidewalk (unless you are concerned about your safety - i.e. icy conditions causing dangerous footing). Therefore, you will find that some of the potential routes between controls are out-of-bounds because that route would partially follow a dashed purple line. Instead, you will often be forced to choose a more convoluted route like in a maze. This may force you to use many alleyways which will likely be slippery and possibly be dark depending on the time of day. Expect some icy spots and consider wearing spikes as well as a headlamp if dark.
To simplify the process, we are asking members to sign up for the series. We plan to offer between 10 and 13 sessions. You must register and pay for the series in advance. You will receive an email (from [email protected]) regarding the exact location each week. No onsite registration or membership signup will be provided. More details in the email!
