The New England Orienteering Club is proud to invite you to the 2016 Troll Cup!  The Troll Cup is a 2-day national orienteering meet sanctioned by Orienteering USA. The first day will feature two middle-distance races, and the second day will have a classic distance race. For the first day, the second race will have a seeded interval start where the ordering will be the inverse finish order from the first race. 

The map is a new map of F. Gilbert Hills State Forest by Marcello Pradel, who also mapped Townsend State Forest in 2014 and Bear Brook State Park in New Hampshire. Foxborough is 30 miles SW of Boston and 20 miles NE of Providence, RI.


Parking for Saturday is at the large parking lot at 1 Bass Pro Dr, Foxborough MA, 02035.  Competitors will be bussed to the meet site, which is approximately 3 km to the south.  Buses will cycle every 15 minutes and will pick up and drop off from the intersection of Bass Pro Dr and Washington St.  The arena on Saturday is about 500m from both the Preliminary and Final start, and the finish is located at the arena.  
On Sunday, parking is at a lot by the Cocasset River Park adjacent to a sports field.  The address of the lot is 134 Mill St Foxborough MA 02035; all vehicles must park at this location.  The arena is an 800m walk from the parking area, and the start is 300m from the arena.  The arena is at the DCR forest headquarters at 45 Mill St - and people may be dropped off there, but all cars must park at the Cocasset River park lot.
