Courses

Site access

  • Remote start for all courses. From the bus drop off to start is a 1.7 km uphill walk for all courses except Veterans (M/F 75+ and all older categories).
  • Remote Finish for Courses 4, 6, 7 ,8, 9, 10, & 11.

Vegetation

There are significant logged areas, but they have been well-mapped. There are also areas of dark green which fit the description of “fight” in terms of runnability.  Vegetation (runnability/visibility) still needs to be reviewed for growth over the past two years.

Trails

There is a trail network on the map.

Terrain

The map area covers a hillside. Contours are very reliable.  There are some areas of complex contours. Courses 4 and 6 through 11 can expect climb as noted in the chart above.  Careful navigation to use the best areas of runnability could be important.

Water Features

Water features are fairly reliable.

Shared Park Use

Please be respectful of other park users. 

Water

There will be water at the start and finish.
