8 pm Course Closure, participants must report to the Finish before leaving.


There are three loops this coming Wednesday! They are all inspired by various exercises I did in Norway.

Loop 1 is a mixture of corridor O and bubble O (a wider corridor with multiple controls in it). The rule of the game is to not stray outside the red lines!

Loop 2 has sections where all of one type of feature have been removed in order to make you concentrate on other features.

Loop 3 is normal on the way out, and then the map flips and you run back on a reflection of it!

Loop 1 is approximately 2.7 km and loops 2 and 3 are approximately 2.2 km each.

The beginner course is loop 1, the intermediate course is loops 1 and 2 and the advanced course is loops 1,2 and 3.

Safety Precautions

Take extra care when crossing roads and cross only at designated crossing points.  Please carry a GVOC whistle. We sell them at every event for $1 - what a bargain!

Parking/Start/Finish Locations

The start/finish is under a handy awning behind the Cameron Recreation Complex.  There is a bit of parking at the complex, as well as a lot of free parking at the Lougheed Mall just south of the meeting point.  The start/finish is also within easy walking distance of the Lougheed Skytrain Station and associated bus station.
