A super fun, technical and VERY urban course! Yep, it doesn't get any more urban than the centre of downtown Vancouver. Plenty of different route choices to separate the competition.
6:15pm - Orienteering introduction for beginners
6:30pm - Starts begin
8:30pm - Course Closure, participants must report to the Finish by Course Closure Time.
Two courses will be offered, one of which is easier/shorter and suitable for beginners/families. The other of which is Longer/Harder.
Since this course is right in the centre of downtown please be very cautious of traffic. Follow traffic lights and stay on pedestrian friendly sidewalks and walkways.
Of course parking downtown is always a nightmare so you might consider leaving your car at home, or finding a park 'n ride location near a skytrain station. The start/finish location is just outside the Burrard Skytrain Station in the grassy area (also known as Discovery Square). This makes it easily accessible via public transit (there is also a bus loop in this location). There are multiple pay parking lots in the immediate area as well.
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.
