Map: South Surrey Bike Park

South Surrey Bike Park has two distinct zones: forest with twisty bike trails and open areas with athletic fields, arenas, and parking. The bike trails are very complex and require intense concentration while the fields and arenas reward fast running. All courses will visit the trails and the fields.

Why Just Run

What should I bring? Wear something comfortable that you don't mind getting a little dirty! If it's wet outside, you might want to consider a change of shoes and socks! A compass is optional (we have extra ones for borrowing). For added safety, a whistle is mandatory for all GVOC events. Read more in the WJR Introduction to Orienteering.
