Come join us for a Semi - Virtual Day of Sprint training. Making use of the large area of covered by the UBC map it will be possible to participate in 3 (or 4) sprint courses over the period of a day. Attend the Zoom pre-event training ideas and things to learn followed by a Zoom post-event re-cap of the day.
This will be a great way to learn the intricacies of Sprint Orienteering. Maps will be available at a pickup location not far from UBC and will be available for the whole weekend. So you can do your day of training at a time that suits you.
There will be a cost associated with this event and registration will be setup shortly.
Why Just Run Plus!
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! We will have a small selection of loaner compasses, but best to bring your own. These can be purchased at Distance Runwear, Salomon West Van, and MEC, or probably most outdoor stores. For added safety, a whistle is mandatory for all GVOC events. Read more in the WJR Introduction to Orienteering.
Event Cost: See event-specific information above.
