Description for this WET
Event Director/Course Planner, Membership/Registrar, Trainer
Steep ravine of Byrne Creek hosted Sunday event of last Sprint Camp few weeks ago. Come and refresh your memories or just have some fun with run.
06:30pm Start of event (Individual Starts, Introduction to Orienteering for Beginners, Membership...)
08:00pm Course Closure, participants must report to the Finish by Course Closure Time.
Classic point-to-point orienteering. Two courses will be offered. Easy Course will be suitable for beginners. It will be shorter (circa 2 km), with easy route choices and smaller elevation difference. Advanced will be suitable for advanced orienteers. It will include longer distance (circa 3.5 km), more challenging terrain and crucial route choices.
Large part of this area is steep ravine of Byrne Creek with forest vegetation. Extra caution is strongly recommended during running on slippery trails, bushwhecking, crossing of water flows etc. Whistle is mandatory equipment for all participants. Be respectful to other runners, pedestrians, dog walkers, cyclists and cars especially in urban parts of map.
Small parking lot in SW corner of Ron McLean Park. Same meeting point as during last Sprint Camp. Close to public washrooms.
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.
