Canada

Again I didn't find any time to go to an orienteering event in Canada. but I had some running trainings in very nice areas.
First at the Niagara waterfalls. About the most touristic site of Canada, and I can understand it. The view from my hotelroom was really incredible. (see picture)


To run you can start from the waterfalls and run a alond the river in east direction. It was really surprising that there was a big temperature difference between the falls-area and anything more than 500 meters away from the river. You could really feel a difference of about 5 degrees.

In Edmonton I didn't expect good running abilities in the neighbourhood of my hotel. I was really surprised though when I found a nice track along the river at both sides. Edmonton is located more north and more west in Canada. So you can expect colder temperatures. But I was lucky ... temparatures of about 19 degrees celsius.


here you can see my training run alond the river.

    Hi! of course there are maps. The whole valley of Edmonton is mapped. And exactly where you ran we made a map. Still snow there?
