Mariko Cowan, of Blue Ash, runs to insert her key into the final station of the first ever Sidney Orienteering race at Tawawa Park Sunday, May 7. Looking on is Benji Breinich who also took part in the race. Thirty three keys were given to 67 competitors, some on their own some going in groups. Participants were given maps of Tawawa Park and a compass. They had to locate 29 stops in a numbered order. At each stop they inserted a key into a small box that transmitted the time and location. Cowan’s final time was 1 hour 3 minutes and 7 seconds. Participants came from all over including Columbus, Cincinnati, Fort Wayne, Ind. and Michigan.
