Map: Renfrew Ravine
Did the farsta at Sprint Camp get the best of you? Or do you wish that you had a chance to run it? Or you just like the chaos of running with, against, and around your clubmates? Come on out to try the Renfrew Ravine farsta event!
Here is the description from the Sprint Camp program:
"There will be 4 loops, or “parts”. All loops are on one double sided sheet of paper in one map bag. You will first run Part 1, then Part 2, then Part 3, then Part 4. Parts 1-3 are forked loops that start and finish at the hub control #100. You must punch this hub control on each loop. Loop 4 is a common loop and the hub #100 must be punched before proceeding to the finish control."
The course was designed by Mike Rascher. It is a very small area, that is appropriate for beginners (some of the controls may be slightly off the trail, but not by much). If it ends up being too much, you can always just leave off some loops.
PLEASE BRING YOUR SPORT IDENT (SI) IF YOU HAVE ONE.-- EDIT NEVERMIND, WE'RE JUST USING PIN FLAGS.
