For the experienced competitive orienteer sprintorienteering is a challenge in quick decision making at high speeds.For those more recreationally inclined it is a chance for a beautifulstroll in the park. The terrain will be mostly open park with a fewforested areas.
At Cypress Falls, two courses will be offered, a beginners course of around 2km, and a difficult course around 4km in length. The woods at Cypress Falls can be quite slow due to the hillyness, so the fastest times are expected to be around 40 minutes for the difficult course.
