Organizers: Marion O (Event Director), Teresa (Controller)

Map: Crescent Heights (see also Prince's Island map)

FWOC Club Night at Gord's is back! Come and try different shoes from the test fleets of Salomon, Hoka, and Asics. Then you can run a course in Crescent Heights. Gord is a local running store owner (Gord's Running Store) who has always been incredibly supportive of orienteering!! He also has thumb compasses in stock.

Check back for updates! There will likely be fantastic deals and maybe prizes! I believe there will be a draw for Brooks shoes as the Brooks rep can't make it on this night! Also, Gord is offering a 25% discount on regular priced items for club members!

The longer courses will be off trail, and the Bluffs are quite steep - so shoes with good traction recommended, especially if it is raining! Or try out some shoes!

Teresa has been updating the map to sprint standard - another reason to come out for the first event of the WEO season!! The map will be 1:4,000 with 3m contours.

Note that everything should be set up by 5:30 (no deals etc before the store closes at 6) - so you will have lots of time afterwards to hang out at Gord's!! And maybe win a prize or get a good deal! And enjoy some snacks!

There will be 3 courses:

  • short and fairly easy (Young children should be supervised - this is not a TD1 course) 1.2k only one short climb of ~18m!
  • intermediate: some off-trail on the Bluff. 2k and ~60 m of climb
  • Long: 4k with 105m of climb. There will be a map flip, using the new symbol!!
