Sprint events use easy controls
in complex urban areas, requiring the orienteer to concentrate
on the fasted route choice and speed. They can be enjoyed by experienced competitors looking
to orienteer fast and those just learning orienteering, because the controls are easy, which
makes for a great way to learn the sport.
There will be an opportunity for a tutorial for new orienteers at 12.30 pm.
UVIC Parking lot just off Gordon Head Road. If you are travelling to UVIC on Mackenzie Road,
turn right on Gordon Head just before you reach the campus and look for the parking lot on the
