Map: Watershed Park
Come join us for November's WJR at the beautiful forest in Watershed Park in Delta. Sign up by Saturday at noon to guarantee yourself a map.
9:15 am - Registration Open
10 am - First Start
11:15 am - Last Start
12:30 pm - Course Close (you must report back to the start/finish, even if you haven't finished the course otherwise we will send out a search party for you!)
There are four different point to point courses of varying length/difficulty so there should be something for everyone! There will be club members on hand to provide instruction for people who are new to the sport as well!
Please park on Pinewood Drive (near Pinewood elementary, see map). The start, finish, and registration will be held at the scout camp in the middle of Watershed park. Follow the marked route from the Pinewood Drive park entrance to the scout camp. It is a 600m walk so remember all of your things when you walk in.
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.
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.
How much does it cost? Regular "Why Just Run:" events cost adult: $10 / under 20: $5 / family maximum: $20 (sorry, we only accept cash and cheques - no credit or debit). Some special events may cost a little more, and this will be made clear in the event detail above.
Club membership is also required: adult newcomer: $10 / adult renewal: $20 / under 20: $5 / family maximum: $40 (sorry, we only accept cash and cheques - no credit or debit)
Membership lasts until the end of the year, and gives you FREE access to all our weekly Wednesday Evening Training events.
