Map: Carburn Park
Thanks to everyone who volunteered to help out with this event. Despite the torrential 20 min. rain/hail storm that hit during the setting out of controls which delayed the start of the event, it turned out to be a great evening!
Sorry about the placing of control 54 and 39. The control setters were very wet and rushed and made a few mistakes! I have added those controls in for those who gave up the search so you would have a time!
There will be four courses on offer (novice, intermediate, short advanced and long advanced)
The "Advanced" courses offer more challenging route choice and navigation and many of the "forest" controls require off path travel for the most direct route.
Carburn Park is a unique little area with paved paths, ponds and water features, lots of small trails, forested areas and an intricately laid out surrounding neighborhood all right next to the Bow River. The area received extensive flood damage in 2013, but was remapped in 2016. There are several new small paths that are not on the map and some of the large distinct trees have succumbed to wind and are now lying down.
The Intermediate and advanced courses will take you out of the park and into the surrounding neighborhood. There are several long, "route choice" legs to keep you on your toes! The distances given are point to point and courses 2-4 will be 1-2 km longer than indicated due to the long route choice legs. Come prepared for a good workout!
