The Billygoat is a mass-start, long-distance orienteering event. The course requires intermediate to advanced orienteering skills, and will be 10-14 km long. There are two courses: the full Billygoat, and the Pygmy goat, which is a shorter version of the Billygoat. All who complete the course in under 3.5 hours get a teeshirt.
