Ellicottville Adventure Run and Hike
In Orienteering parlance, this is a Score-O / Mini-Rogaine lasting your choice of a 3-hour or 6-hour time limit. In everyday language, this is an opportunity to run or hike using a map to find numerous “flag” controls placed over a large area. Locate however many you desire in any order within your pre-chosen time limit. It’s a great format for both hard-core competition and casual family hiking.
Our event headquarters is at the CCC Camp Seneca on Hungry Hollow Road on the back side of McCarty Hill. From the village of Ellicottville take Route 219 South about three miles before turning right onto Hungry Hollow Road. Continue until the asphalt changes to gravel, then look for the club’s signs to the camp. Here’s a link to the location on Google Maps. The GPS coordinates are 42.2243817, -78.7025548.
Starting time for the 6-hour event is 11am and the 3-hour is 1pm. Please note that maps will be handed out at 10:00am and 12:30pm, respectively, so that participants can strategize. Questions? Email the Meet Director: Linc Blaisdell, or call him at (716) 479-9431.
