Organizer: Chris Ball (Event Director)
Map: North False Creek
I hope everyone's looking forward to our first sunny and warm run of the year !! There are two standard point-to-point courses utilizing the eastern portion of the map to avoid any of the construction areas west of BC Place. The first course is more of a beginner level course - "Not so tricky". The "A little more tricky" course is more advanced and makes use of all the fun levels and stairs in the area. Be very careful as there are many street crossings. Bring all your friends as these courses will be SUNNY and FUN and will not lead to any temper tantrums (I hope) !!
6:15pm Introduction to Orienteering for Beginners
8pm Course Closure, participants must report to the Finish before leaving.
Take extra care when crossing roads. Please carry a GVOC whistle. We sell them at every event for $1 - what a bargain!
Meet at the Rogers arena plaza next to the box office under the Dunsmuir Viaduct. Stadium Skytrain station is across the street. There are no games or concerts on so parking should be plentiful. If you're clever, you can find some of the free street parking around the City Gate residential towers or east of main on Station street. These spots are a little further away but nice for a warm up jog.
There is a great Ramen spot down the street if anyone's interested. Lots of other choices as well.
