Join us for the Fourth Annual Club Night at Gord's Running Store! Gord's store is at 919 Centre Street NW. After organizing this, I am not actually going to be in Calgary, but Karen and Andree have graciously offered to take over! This is always a fun night - as well as chances to win some gear :)

I did run around the control sites this morning - the map is not totally accurate in some places but not enough to cause problems...I hope! So make sure you always look at the big picture. There's one place that I really would have liked to call it south end of cliff, but there's no cliff on the map! Check it out (only on the long course). Published distances are as the crow flies, so expect to go a bit further ;)

Gord has supported orienteering for many years, from his independent running store in Calgary. There will be three course options starting at 6:15pm, but come early to do some shopping!

SPECIALS confirmed so far:

The following reps will be there with their fleets of shoes for people to test run: Salomon, Mizuno, Asics, New Balance and Saucony (no rep, just shoes).

Also: Planet Nutrition, Rock On Clay

Also: 20% off any of the above mentioned suppliers; 10% off anything other regular priced product; 20% off socks; 50% off headlamps; and numerous draws!

Also: a grand prize package drawn from anyone making purchases that evening!!

For parking at Gord's, participants can find extra parking across 9th Ave at the Auto Select lot after 6pm (they're closed in the evenings), along 1st Street NW, or on 2nd Street NW between the high school and Crescent Road NW.
