6:15 pm - Introduction to Orienteering for Beginners
6:30 pm - Starts begin for both courses
8:00 pm - Course Closure, participants must report to the Finish by Course Closure Time.
The short course is geared towards beginners with just enough elevation gain and use of the area's natural corridors to give you a decent taste of the Grousewoods area.
The long course takes you on a grand tour with a few opportunities for route choice. Even though it's only 4km, there should be enough climbing to give you at least a bit of a workout.
Please respect all private property! Do not enter or cut corners through any gardens, driveways or flowerbeds. We want to maintain a good reputation in this area. Some trail entries/exits are very close to driveways or backyards. Olive green on the map stands for private.
You will be running on residential streets with some traffic. Stay on the sidewalks whenever possible and be cautious while crossing.
The Start/Finish will be located at the service building by the soccer field in Cleveland Park. Bathrooms and a water fountain are available on site. I was informed by a local that the bathrooms are generally open until sunset. Parking is free in the park's parking lot as well as along Nancy Greene way.
Without volunteers, these events cannot take place. A hearty thanks to all those helping put this event on. If you would like to volunteer/help at upcoming WETs/WJRs or would like to organize a WET please let us know.
