**Please note that all courses will be going up onto the SAIT campus. There are road crossings within the campus and a C-train crossing. There are 2 mandatory crossing points on Course 1 and there will be 3 minor road crossings on Course 1. All road crossings will have Adult traffic monitors for Course 1. Please discuss this with your younger children! (There will be no mandatory crossing points for Course 2,3 but standard sprint rules for out of bound areas do apply!)
**Course 1 will be slightly more challenging than a typical course 1 in that some short legs do not follow linear features which makes orienting the map very important!
