Map: Sumas Mountain
Sumas Mtn Forest is a lovely open forest with interesting contour features making this an excellent area to practise your forest skills. This event may combine a couple of training exercises followed by a run to hone those skills.
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.
