Rules & Awards

The Classic Champs will be governed by the OUSA Rules of Competition, A.20. Note that whistles are required to be carried by all competitors.

Awards
All regular OUSA courses/age classes will be offered and will receive awards based on the combined times from both days. OUSA championship medals will be awarded for all eligible competitors in the combined Two Day Classic Championships. There will also be non­championship awards for the combined two day top finishers in each class, including all open classes. A current OUSA membership is one of the conditions required for championship eligibility; see the OUSA membership page to become a member and the OUSA Rules of Competition, A.12 for General Eligibility and Championship Eligibility. 

Embargo Details
For the sake of competitive fairness and in accordance with OUSA rules, the two race venues are embargoed until the competition, i.e. people wishing to retain eligibility for competitive awards may not visit these areas before the event.

However, it is permitted to ride or run on the mountain bike trails within Marine Corps Base Quantico as long as one stays on marked mountain bike trails and does not carry an orienteering or adventure race map. Keep in mind that mountain bikers always have the right of way on designated mountain bike trails and that since these are not mixed use trails foot traffic is both unexpected and discouraged. The safest thing to do if you must follow the trails on foot is to follow them at arm's length. i.e walk beside the trail. This exception to the general embargo is in place due to popularity of this trail network with local mountain bikers and adventure racers who may wish to compete in this event. Note that most mountain bike trails on the Base are not located in the area where the orienteering races will be held.
