Location:  Eagan, MN
Courses:  Regular Courses (Beginner to Advanced)
 
Start:  12pm (noon) to 1:30pm

Overview

Lebanon Hills Regional Park is the largest park in the Dakota County park system. Containing almost 2,000 acres, the park offers miles of trails and many lakes for year-round outdoor sports, recreation and environmental education.  The terrain varies greatly over different areas of the park: it has rolling hills, heavily wooded sections, open areas, and an excellent trail network.  Additionally, the park has done a large amount of buckthorn removal, so it's very runnable and great for orienteering meets.  We're also having an after-meet social at Bonfire Wood Fire Cooking, so feel free to drop by!

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.

Volunteer

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.
