Final details and relay teams

Click here to download the final details (updated Thursday 9 Feb, 11:30am PST). Please ensure you have a copy available throughout the weekend.

Note that the program includes shoe recommendations for each race based on regular Vancouver conditions. If ice and snow are still present, you should wear your grippiest shoes (see snow status below).

The list of two-person relay teams is available here - if you want to make any changes, please email Scott by the end of the Friday banquet (see page 15 of the final details for instructions).

Join us for the 2017 Sprint Camp! Prepare yourself for a weekend jam-packed with sprint training exercises, with a few races thrown in to practice those skills!

Registration for the full weekend is now closed. But, you can still sign up for the Sunday races, which are part of our Why Just Run series.

See who is registered for the weekend here.


Vancouver Sprint Camp 2017 will be the first event of the inaugural North American Sprint Series! The series contains four sprint events located in Canada and the United States. Participants who attend Vancouver Sprint Camp, the Boston Sprint Camp, the Seattle Adventure Running Tournament (SART), and the Sprint San Francisco events will be eligible to earn points that determine how they place in the North American Sprint Series. The more events you go to the greater chance you have of taking home the title of North American Sprint Champion!!



Thank you to the Orienteering Association of BC and viaSport for the financial contribution towards Sprint Camp costs. We'd also like to thank the City of Vancouver, City of Coquitlam, and City of New Westminster for granting us permission to orienteer in their parks.
