Map: Jericho Beach

Come and enjoy this sunny week with a beach event at Jericho. We've included the hill up to Trimble Park in the longer course for a good challenge.

We will be continuing with socially distanced virtual events but a COVID-compliant hang out is encouraged on the Wednesday evening after 6:15pm.

Pinflags will be placed on Tuesday evening and then taken in on Friday evening. The sun now sets at 7:00pm, so bring a headlamp if you plan to do the course in the evening.

We are still not providing maps. You can use the MapRunF app directly, or email for a PDF (gvoc.membership@gmail.com).

Course notes:

  • There are lots of flags very similar to ours that are marking newly planted trees. Please don't disturb the new plantings - and don't mistake one for a control!
  • Please cross major only at lights.
  • Please stay out of closed sections and keep appropriate distance from schools.
  • Trimble Park has a disc golf course, so watch for flying objects!
  • Some parts of the forested part of the map are a little overgrown.
  • There is paid parking near the start/finish and sometimes free street parking beyond the permit-only areas.

Wednesday Evening Training

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 headlamp or flashlight and reflective clothing is critical in the winter months (late September to April). 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 WET Introduction to Orienteering.

When should I sign up? Please sign up by Tuesday night so that we can print enough maps, although we have extra maps if you forget.

How much does it cost? All WETs are free with yearly membership (adult newcomer: $10 / adult renewal: $20 / under 20: $10 / family maximum: $40). We now accept credit and debit cards (preferred). Contact membership team for other payment options.
