Important Pre-Sprint Camp Information
All participants who have not registered as a GVOC member for 2014 must sign a waiver. Save time by printing out the waiver and presigning it.
If you are coming for dinner on Saturday, February 8 please bring your own plates and cutlery.
You must pre-register your team for the sprint relay.
Teams of 2 with no age or gender restrictions, form any team you want
- Person 1 runs leg 1 and 3
- Person 2 runs leg 2 and 4
Teams must pre-register before the race by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
- The names of both of the runners on the team
- SI numbers used by the 2 runners
- Who runs leg 1&3 and who runs leg 2&4
Each leg is about 900m to 1000m long with spectator control half way through. All 4 legs are forked together so that every team will have run all legs by the end of the relay. Many controls are close together - check control codes!
All 4 leg maps will be in one map bag. Legs 1&2 will be on one side and legs 3&4 will be on the other
Exchange by handing over the map to your team mate.
It is each runner’s responsibility to run the correct leg each time.
All sessions: $75
Friday only: $15
