Join us for our next Let's Talk Orienteering Speaker Series

5 pm pacific / 8 pm eastern

We love sprint orienteering. And why you should too!
When we think of sprint orienteering in Canada, we immediately think of the Greater Vancouver Orienteering Club (GVOC), host club of the popular annual Sprint Camp. GVOC is famous for inventive sprint formats and using even the smallest of areas for fabulous orienteering, year-round. Join us for this presentation with GVOC member Graeme Rennie. Graeme will talk about the basics (and not so basics) of sprint orienteering, tips for creating basic maps, a bundle of different formats for fun training and events, and how sprint orienteering can help build your orienteering club.

A quick reminder about our sprint focused webinar coming up on Thursday at 5 pm pacific - focused on a number of topics related to sprint orienteering.

GVOC does an amazing job of mapping a wide variety of areas, even small areas and using innovative formats to do orienteering in these areas. This can be a good way to increase and/or develop orienteering in a new area/city/region without the need/expense of creating larger traditional maps.
