Map: Sylvan Lake (updated 2019). ISOM 2017. Contour intervals 5m.

Course setter notes: This event will be held in the Cranbrook Community Forest by the College of the Rockies. Parts of the forest were logged in the last two years. The visibility in these areas is great. However, uneven ground with tree stumps and tall grass make for slow running. These areas are marked on the map as white forest with green lines. There is a substantial trail network some of which are overgrown. Many rock features are scattered throughout the map as well as very detailed contoured features.

Location: Cranbrook. Drive to Cranbrook College of the Rockies where ample parking is available.

Courses

This is a Canada Cup event.

Parking

There is a large parking lot at the College of the Rockies. The distance between the parking lot and the start is approximately 650 m.

TOILETS

Toilets are available at the track and field area north of the parking lot, inside of the auxiliary building which is west of the track. Also, if the college is open (limited hours) there are washrooms in there, which we can use.
