Description:The Peggys Cove Conservation Area is rugged glacial terrain with many
barren open areas with easy running, huge delicately perched glacial
erratics, bogs, marshes, and very thick brush. Running is often easier
parallel to the rocky ridges than perpendicular to them, so competitors
will have to choose their routes carefully. Because it is so open, you
will often see other competitors. You will also often be in sight of the
ocean. There is a lot of low brush: good cover for your legs is
essential. There will be 40 controls on the long course, all of equal
value. The novice course will have 20 controls, also all of equal value.
The 2 hour novice course is significantly easier than the 4 hour course,
but still demands an ability to read a map, and have some comfort going
off trails. However, competitors do not have to get all controls, so
can easily adjust the level of difficulty to their taste.

Start location for Peggys Cove event:
The start is nearest the town of West Dover.
From Halifax, take highway 333 toward Peggys Cove.
Just after West Dover, about 4 km before Peggys Cove, is a
baseball diamond. The start is in a parking lot across the street.
