Map: Central Park
Join us for the first of our "Return to WET" events. We will be continuing with socially distanced virtual events but a COVID-compliant hang out is encouraged on the Wednesday evening after 6:30pm. For those who would prefer not to deal with traffic an optional hangout will be happening at 10:30am on the Wednesday.
Meet at the picnic area near the Children's Playground and washroom. Park at the east side parking lot near Swanguard Stadium. Start and finish around the playground.
If you haven't already signed the new COVID-compliant waiver, please do so before heading out on the course. https://zone4.ca/reg.asp?id=24066
Although the courses have been designed to only visit well traveled parts of the map there are some areas which we have tried to identify which contain homeless camps. Out of bounds areas and trails are marked on the printed map. These don't show on the phone version of the map so please use a paper map if at all possible.
We will not have printed maps for you at the event. Because our insurance policy requires that everyone who participates in a GVOC event be a member of the club, please email gvoc.membership@gmail.
Remember that these events are to be run/walked individually, obeying all the social distancing recommendations currently in place. However, for your personal safety please let somebody know where you are, and what you are doing. These are not sanctioned events; we don't retain any liability for participants. This is a do-at-your-own-risk, training suggestion.
The map needs to be printed Landscape to have the correct scale.
The Central Park course can be accessed in the MapRunF app under "Select an Event > Canada > British Columbia > Vancouver >Wednesday Evening Training ". For instructions on setting up the phone app, see the pdf document "How to setup and run MapRunF". Note that if you have an android phone that puts the GPS into sleep mode, that causes issues when attempting to use it for this activity. There is another app called GPS Connected which can also be downloaded and used to lock the GPS to the satellites. Remember to unlock it when you have finished the course.
Courses can also be uploaded to the RouteGadget map here
