The New England Orienteering Club

The 2024 Winter Challenge is open to current NEOC members. Courses have been designed at five locations around Massachusetts. Set yourself a challenge and reach one of these challenge levels:

  • 1 to 3 locations: Who said you couldn’t orienteer in New England in the winter? Congrats for getting into the woods and strengthening the synapses in your brain!
  • 4 to 5 locations: You will roll into the spring O-season ready to show off your navigation skills. You have mastered the Winter O-challenge and will be listed as a Winter O-challenge Master on the NEOC website (and contacted to help volunteer in the spring).


  • Beech Hill (Westminster, MA)
  • Lynn Woods (Lynn, MA)
  • High Rock (Foxborough, MA)
  • Prospect Hill (Waltham, MA)
  • Willard Brook (Townsend, MA)

The Challenge runs through April 1! We'll keep track of who has done which trainings with an online spreadsheet, so make sure you are filling it out for each course you run! Please share your comments on the courses or just enter your name to let us know you are getting out on the courses.

The Winter Challenge is a training activity for NEOC members. Details are included in the confirmation email, sent when you join/renew for 2024.
Be sure to check out the comments from members on the spreadsheet of course info before heading out!
