Map: King Edward West
A last minute decision was made to award a bonus 2 minutes off the finish time for anyone who brought back garbage from the forest! Many people took advantage of this and we ended up with a nice bag full of trash... well done! The award for most burdensome and large piece of garbage goes to Chris Pedersen for dragging a sheet of metal as tall as he is! That earned a whopping 10 minutes off his finish time.
Join us for an urban/forest WET to sharpen some skills before the Pig War at Sumas Mountain! The forecast is looking good for some sun and warm weather.
6:15pm Introduction to Orienteering for Beginners
8pm Course Closure, participants must report to the Finish before leaving.
Beginner - This course is suitable for beginners or those looking for a short trail adventure. 2.2km
Advanced - Trickier control placements and a longer course. 4.4km
Carry a whistle at all times. There may be coyotes in the area but will likely avoid the scary humans. Many dog walkers and other runners use these trails so be considerate of others!
There is parking in the Queen Elizabeth Elementary School parking lot or on 16th that runs along the field/park. The start will be near the parking lot.
There are a few options along Dunbar (Indian food, pub food etc...). To be determined post-event!
