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.
NORTH AMERICAN SPRINT SERIES
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.
