Organizer: Scott Sheldrake (Event Director)
After a long COVID break, VICO welcomes back its most popular event of the year : The Determinator Series!
The Determinator is a Series of 4 orienteering races taking place over 4 weeks on Wednesday evenings at 7pm. Each race is a short sprint style course where you have to collect controls in order as fast as possible. We will be using the GOAT format which means you are allowed to skip any one control of your choosing, adding an extra element of strategy.
When: Wednesday May 25th 2022 - Pre-register at home. Maps distributed at 650pm. Mass start at 7pm.
Where: Determinator #1 will take place at Lansdowne Camosun College at 3100 Foul Bay Rd in Victoria. Park at the far North end of the student parking lot, entrance off Foul Bay Rd. See map to meeting location below.
Courses: There will be two courses offered:
- Determinator Course - intended for those with some experience - Classic Goat Format - Skip one control!
- Easy Course - intended for those brand new to orienteering.
What to Bring: Wear light clothes suitable for running. Any decent running shoes or trail runners. No leg covering needed for this event. Compass is optional for urban terrain, but will be needed for events in forest areas.
Registration Details: Register prior to the event with our new Zone4 registration system. Register, pay and sign waivers all in one shot. Show up and just race! Link to Registration : https://zone4.ca/register.asp?id=28989
IMPORTANT: Each upcoming Determinator will rank participants based on their performance at the previous events using a handicap system. Results and handicaps will be posted after the first event. This system gives a chance for everyone to compete against each other no matter their experience or speed as the handicap system creates a great equalizer.
Come out and have fun! See you out there!
