Map: Iona Beach
Flat area - updated map by Brian Ellis in 2019. Please be aware there could be blackberries in parts of the area so think about wearing full leg cover.
There is also a very short "sprint" loop which is recommended to be done afterwards for those who do the long course - just less than 1 km it is designed for you to run as fast as possible.
Sunset is 8 pm but it could be still worth bringing a headlamp.
6:15pm Introduction to Orienteering for Beginners
8:00 pm Course Closure, participants must report to the Finish before leaving.
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 at the beach area near the washrooms
Take the Templeton
street exit (next to the new Templeton Canada line station). Templeton Street
