Organizer: Jackie Bonn (Event Director)
Local C meet with short and middlish long distance.
Registration is at 11 with first starts at 11.30. The course closes at 2pm … which means you have to be back at the finish by that time or the O Gods will be displeased.
The start and finish is at about 9k on the Lac Du Bois road just past Lac Du Bois. The area is stunningly beautiful at this time of year with wildflowers, aspens with fresh leaves and ponds brimming with water and swimming with ducks. Most of the land we will be running on is owned by the Nature Conservancy and they have given us permission to hold our event. Please take care of the land and the fences.
From Kamloops, drive west from Downtown following the direction signs across the South Thompson River to North Kamloops and the Airport. At the junction with 8th Avenue, turn North on 8th following the road signs to Westsyde. After 1km there is a major junction. Keep North to Batchelor Drive which becomes Lac Du Bois Road. The route will be marked with O signs from there. Follow the road to about 9k. Park on the side of the road.
Alternatively you can follow Highway 5 about 5k north of Kamloops to the major junction at Halston Ave where you turn west. Cross the North Thompson River bridge and follow the signs to Westsyde, turning off Halston Ave about 500 m after crossing the N. Thompson. Once on the road north to Westsyde you drive 100m North toward the major junction with Batchelor Drive.
