Course Maps

Advanced - Long

Organizers: Colin Norman (Event Director), Teresa (Controller)

Map: Nose Hill (1:15,000)

Notes from the Course Planner

The Advanced courses have two distinct zones, the first part of the course runs across mostly open land with few topographical features. Compass work will be key to success. Then the route transitions to the hills: here you will be wise to keep track of every copse, thicket and shrub as well as the contours - with well planned route selections the course might not be as hilly as it looks.

The Novice course is slightly harder than typical path-path junctions, but will be a good transition if your little one is ready for the next step. Some controls are off-trail, but with good visibility. There is even some route selection involved.

The mosquitoes are out. Bring bug juice!
