We love sprint orienteering. And why you should too!
When we think of sprint orienteering in Canada, we immediately think of the Greater Vancouver Orienteering Club (GVOC), host club of the popular annual Sprint Camp. GVOC is famous for inventive sprint formats and using even the smallest of areas for fabulous orienteering, year-round. Join us for this presentation with GVOC member Graeme Rennie. Graeme will talk about the basics (and not so basics) of sprint orienteering, tips for creating basic maps, a bundle of different formats for fun training and events, and how sprint orienteering can help build your orienteering club.
