The group of parks in the Pinecrest Park neighbourhood of Ottawa's West end will be the site of the second sprint event of the summer season. Expect fast running on varied surfaces with very little elevation gain. There will also be a butterfly loop "micro"-orienteering session in each course requiring fast turning and quick thinking. The area is not suited for spiked shoes.

Just like in Event 1 there will be two courses:

Short Course: 2.4 km, 18 controls
Long Course: 4.4 km, 25 controls

Registration: 6 - 6:45 pm

Starts: 6:15 - 7 pm

Course Closes: 8 pm (everyone must report to the Download Station)

Sonny’s Bar and Grill is kindly hosting us for Registration/Download and an opportunity to have a cold beverage and/or food after the event. Plenty of parking is available in their mall and on the adjacent Baxter Road and Iris Street. There will be water at the finish but please bring your own container for drinking water so we can reduce the use of plastic cups.
