14 orienteers braved the slippery terrain of Pacific Spirit Park. Lehel Fenyo was the first to finish in the time of 54:45, however, he unfortunatelly forgot to visit one control, so Dan Coombs was the winner in the time of 1:00:35. Closely following, was the first female runner, Louise Oram, in the time of 1:01:15.
The event was the first Vancouver event this year for Jim and Sue Waddington, who have just arrived to Vancouver. They are staying here for the next 4 months.
