Terrain descriptionThe 10 events (races/training sessions) are a mix of urban park lands with mixed forest. Here is the info specific to the WRE event but is also representative of most areas: Terrain includes a small campus area with buildings, walls, passage ways, park land and parking lots. Around the campus is a variety of open fields, forests with trails and a hill with intricate contour and rock features. Vegetation can be thick and very difficult to cross. All such areas are mapped with symbol 409.0 (Undergrowth, very difficult to run) or symbol 410.0 (Vegetation, very difficult to run) and may consist of thorny bushes. Climate in February is typically around 5 to 10 degrees Celsius and a significant chance of rain. Fallen logs and open rocky areas with moss are extremely slippery! Shoes with metal studs may be used, but there will be some running on pavement (~20%).
Training possibilitiesFive of the ten events over the weekend will be training sessions focusing on various aspects of navigation. Some of these will consist of partner sessions, O-tervals, relays, etc.
Holiday activities,nature,hiking etc.There are many activities to enjoy while in the Victoria area. Hiking is abundant, kayaking is world class, and there are numerous nice trails for mountain biking and trail running. There are also many places to go and see in Victoria along with such things as fishing trips or whale watching tours.
