Possum Trot weekend in Lee's Summit, MO consists of two amazing orienteering races. A short course on Saturday at Park University (including the underground caves), and the Possum Trot long distance event on Sunday. Participants can participate one or both days.

*See event details here:

The Possum Trot (Sunday) is an annual long distance 'Goat' style Orienteering Race. A map and compass race through the woods using trails or not. The checkpoint locations are marked but you pick your own route. Multiple Race distances available!

The Possum Trot is different from a typical Orienteering race because: A) The distance is greater, B) Mass start ensures chaos, C) Following is allowed, and D) Allowed to skip 1 control flag

Race options
12.5km - The Possum Trot (skip 1)
6km - The Half Possum (skip 1)
3km - Mid Difficulty Course (Orange)
2km - Beginner course
