Practice details:

This practice will focus on complex urban style orienteering. Different groups will be doing slightly different activities:

Intermediate group - this group will spend the session going through the important sprint orienteering techniques - knowing some of those rarer urban sprint symbols, taking the time to find a good route, reading control descriptions, and keeping your head up.

Advanced and Train to Train groups - these groups will being doing o-tervals (orienteering course intervals) with complex sprint route choice legs. You can run these intervals fast or simply do them at a steady pace but with intense focus. Pair yourself up with another orienteer of similar speed or do it in a small group and pick different route choices so you can compare afterwards! Start each interval at the same time as the others in your group.

Team Canada athletes - Team Canada athletes will be running o-tervals (orienteering course intervals) with a pursuit start. Courses will include extremely challenging route choices.
