Map: Queen Elizabeth Park
Please come out to the next WET this Wed – Sept 19th.The format will be a one person relay – 3 short legs A, B, C for a total of about 3.5 kms. The legs can be run in any order and the idea is to have a mass start for those interested at 6.45 pm. The 3 legs will be on one map.
If you are new to orienteering or want something shorter the recommendation is to do one or two of the legs.
Please bring a headlamp and the idea is that you should be able to do most (if not all) of the course before the sun sets at 7.20 pm.That is assuming it is going to be a nice day……

Start under covered area near the dancing water fountains (opposite Bloedel Conservatory)
Paid parking at the centre of the park near the Bloedel Conservatory. Access the park either from Cambie Street at West 29th or 33rd avenues, or from Main Street at East 33rd Avenue.
By transit Queen Elizabeth Park is near the King Edward and Oakridge-41st stations on the Canada Line.
