Lake Elmo Orienteering Meet
February 18, 2018
Lake Elmo Park Reserve
Lake Elmo, MN
Spend the weekend after Valentines day doing something you LOVE, enjoy an afternoon in the woods! Lake Elmo Park Reserve is 2,165 acres (3.5 square miles) with 80 percent of its acreage set aside for preservation and protection. This portion will eventually resemble the land as it was prior to the arrival of the settlers in the mid-1800s. This park reserve offers gently rolling hills with a variety of landscape types, including forest and prairie. Watch for pheasants, weasels, red fox, woodpeckers, cardinals, cottontail rabbits, squirrels, and white-tailed deer.
The course will be a 90-minute Score-O with a mass-start.

Come Clean Leave Clean
The Minnesota Orienteering Club practices a Come Clean Leave Clean policy. This helps us maintain a good relationship with the parks we utilize, sets a good example for other users, and limits the transfer and spread of many of the plants that make our venues less enjoyable.
It takes a handful of volunteers to make each of our events successful. If you would like to learn more about volunteering, please see our Volunteering page. And as a reward, you'll get a free race entry the next Regular event you choose.
Race results are usually published within 24 hours of the event. View our Race Results page to see the results.
