Tentative only.

Come and join us at Ioco for a run on a competition class Orienteering map. This forest is more open than many around the lower mainland and has lots of pockets of really lovely areas. The area is crisscrossed with small trails so provides detail navigation challenges. If you attended the recent Forest Training series it will test all your skills. We will offer a variety of technical courses.

Come back soon for more details as we firm up access, courses, procedures, etc due to the changing Covid procedures.

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.

Club membership is also required: adult newcomer: $10 / adult renewal: $20 / under 20: $5 / family maximum: $40 (sorry, we only accept cash and cheques - no credit or debit). Membership lasts until the end of the year, and gives you FREE access to all our weekly Wednesday Evening Training events. Best value in Vancouver!
