Run the Wild is BACK for 2019. The race will be staged out of Station Flats in Bragg Creek on the Sulphur Springs map. It will also make use of the extensive mountain bike trail system for some sweet trail running. You can expect a rogaine-style score-O and some standard point-to-point orienteering, with the usual Run the Wild added surprises.
The course has been designed for beginner and seasoned orienteers. Create a route that makes the most of your skills, fitness, and mood!
Teams of 2.
Start and finish are at Station Flats. Please carpool.
9 am - 3 pm
Please arrive by 8:00 am to check in and hear the briefing.

Post-race celebrations to start immediately after. Bring a change of clothes, some warm layers, and a deck chair. Awards at 3.30 pm.
What to bring:
- Cell phone. You are welcome to use technology, such as the TrailForks app. It won't help you win the race, but it might get you out of a bind if you think you are really lost.
- Hydration and food.
- Pen/marker for plotting route.
- Compass and your own SI if you have one. At least one of you needs a compass with which you can set a bearing.
- Clothing that is appropriate for the weather in late September.
- Bear spray.
