STREET ORIENTEERING EVENT
DATE: Sunday, January 29, 2012
Our next scheduled orienteering event
for 2012 will be the Esquimalt Street Orienteering Event.
Lots of interesting control sites, many parks, flat and fast running. Great for families, new orienteers and
experienced orienteers looking for a fast run.
Street Orienteering is great exercise
for all, especially family groups. Navigation is not difficult, but street orienteering
is good training for route planning and for learning to read maps quickly while running.
at Bullen Park, east side, located just north of Lyall St. and Swinford St.

Mass Start: 1PM
