Location: Banded Peak School
It is a 1.8 km walk (or bike ride) on a paved pathway from parking at the Bragg Creek Community Centre to Banded Peak School. The start call-up line is about 60 m from the west side of the schoolyard.
Vegetation is mostly runnable through a forest of mature pine and spruce trees. Areas marked in shades of green include thickets of small trees or shrubs, and some of the larger fallen trees.
There is a trail network on the map.
The terrain is flat to gently sloping with subtle hills and depressions. The map is bounded by fences on all four sides. An out of bounds area is marked on the map, but not in the terrain, in the SE corner of the area. This is to avoid disturbing animals on the adjacent property.
The map does not have a lot of hard-edged manmade features like a typical sprint map. You can run fast, but navigate carefully to avoid wasting precious minutes relocating.
There are a few ponds and marshes but no streams.
