We are excited to bring you this year's installment of the Determinator Series, running five Wednesday evenings in a row starting May 9.

These events are short and fast and increase in difficulty week by week. Each week, we offer a short course and a Determinator course. Prizes are awarded at the end of each race, and we calculate handicaps every week to even the playing field. The final event in Week 5 is a handicap-adjusted staggered start for a race to the finish to become this year's Determinator.

COST: $8 per map plus $2 for Sport Ident rental. All runners must be members of VICO; you can join at the event.

FORMAT: Determinator races use the goat format, a mass start race where controls must be located in sequential order, but you can choose to skip any one control.

WHEN: May 9, 16, 23, 30 and June 6. Registration between 6:00 to 6:45 pm; mass start at 7:00 pm.

WHERE: Beacon Hill Park.Parking lot near the petting zoo.

Determinator 2: Results!

Thanks everyone for another great Determinator turn out. In terms of speed Andrey was pipped to the post this week by Brett Carter who came in 15 secs faster at 17.45. Third place on time was Adrian Low with 18.32. But none of them made the Determinator placings.

First this week on Handicap was Leah Hall. Congratulations Leah!

See you all at High Rock in Esquimalt next week.
