6:15pm Introduction to Orienteering for Beginners
8pm Course Closure, participants must report to the Finish before leaving.
Three courses will be available, ranging from family friendly 2 km to 3.5 km of somewhat technically challenging, to 5.8 km of both running distance and control picking within two boxes.
Shorts will be entirely suitable if you are careful around the blackberries. No bathing suit will be required as tide level is relatively low. Campsites have been avoided. You will see the active transportation systems of Vancouver as planes depart and approach YVR, tugs tow barges up and down the Fraser, as all the while blue herons and beavers ply the marshes of the Fraser.
Always use good judgement and common sense. Carry a whistle at all times. Headlamps are essential to see and be seen. Take care when crossing roads and parking lots. Watch out for other runners, cyclists, and trail/sidewalk users.
Parking lot at Angus Drive and West 75th Avenue is ideal. We will meet close to the river at the picnic tables.
MillTown Bar and Grill recommended. It's located on the map, east end, on the river.
Without volunteers, these events cannot take place. A hearty thanks to all those helping put this event on. If you would like to volunteer/help at upcoming WETs/WJRs or would like to organize a WET please let us know.
