Mass start at 6:45. Option to do 1, 2 or 3 loops. Loops 1 and 2 are 1.8km, and the finale is 2.5k.
Pull out your lights, sparkles and festive clothing for a head start on the course! Festive attire very strongly recommended. Bring along your headlamp too, of course.
Meet at the South West Corner of the Trout Lake Rink (southern building of the Community Centre).
We venture onto the roads a bit this week, please be extremely cautious crossing roads in this dark and rainy season. Unless you are lit up like a Christmas tree (which I hope you are!), it is very hard to see pedestrians right now.
Sign up for the holiday potluck party here! It's a short bike/drive to the party location.
Don't forget a warm/dry set of clothes to wear to the holiday potluck, as it looks like it might be a bit damp trouting about in the rain on Wednesday evening.
6:15pm Introduction to Orienteering for Beginners

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.
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.
