..Old School! We will use the 2003 map 1:7500 with some important updates. It will not be the super detailed map we use for night events. The start will be north of the arena. The course will link Queen's Park, 2 school yards, the Justice Institute, the ravine, and the parks around City Hall. There will be some street running between the detailed areas.
The busiest street (McBride Boulevard) must be crossed by pedestrian bridges. Please take special care when crossing other streets.
TBA Introduction to Orienteering for Beginners
TBA Starts begin
TBA Course Closure, participants must report to the Finish by Course Closure Time.
Two courses will be offered, one of which is Easier/Shorter depending on terrain and suitable for beginners/families. The other of which is Longer/Harder depending on terrain.
Cross McBride only on the footbridges. Take care on other streets.
Enter the park at 3rd Ave & 1st St.
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.
