Organization: Orienteering Cincinnati

The Queen City Adventure Running Series (QCARS) is a series of six events held at parks and other venues in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. Each event will feature two races in which participants use a map and compass to locate hidden checkpoints. One race will be suitable for beginners and the other race for more experienced navigators. Both races will be less than 3 km if traveling straight between each checkpoint. You can go at your own pace, according to your navigation skills and foot speed. Some participants will take their time and enjoy seeing their favorite park in a whole different way. Some participants will go fast in order to best other competitors or attain a personal record. Whatever your goal, we promise an adventure!
