Mountain Bike Orienteering (MTBO) is an orienteering event on a mountain or cross bike where navigation is done along/near trails. The controls will need to be visited in order & riders must decide the most efficient route as they make their way through
the course. Helmets are required at all MNOC bike events.
MTBO Long and Short courses, of approximately 20km and 10km (straight line distance).

Pre-registration is available up to 48 hours before the meet.
Purchase each ticket in a separate transaction, to provide important details for the registrar. If you are orienteering as one group (i.e., one map, one e-stick), then you can buy a single ticket (one transaction) and add names on the registration form.
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. MNOC would like to thank you for volunteering. We have a limited number of $5 REI gift cards for each meet to give thank you's to volunteers. If you would like one, please ask the race director. Learn more about volunteering.
Race results are usually published within 24 hours of the event. View our Race Results page to see the results.
