Orienteering is an exciting sport for all ages and fitness levels that involves racing to find checkpoints as quickly as you can, navigating from a detailed map.
Registration this year is on Interpodia/2mev, and is now open!
The Sage Orienteering Club produces high quality orienteering and adventure running events throughout the southern interior of BC.
Sage's only major event in 2024 is Sage Stomp (date TBD) likely around the Salmon Arm area. We will also be having a couple of Adventure Runs (likely Larch Hills (spring) and Telemark (fall)). There are lots of other nearby events worth traveling to though, including:
- March 22-24: Columbia Gorge Classic (Eastern Washington)
- June 21-30: Pacific North West Orienteering Festival (Eastern Washington & Montana)
We have a couple of local Sunday events scattered throughout the spring and fall.
In 2024 we are planning a Ski-O in February at Larch Hills, along with a mixture of in-person and self-directed events throughout the spring, just like in 2023.
We are planning on having somewhere between 2 and 4 self directed events in Revelstoke this year, although in person events are not being planned at this time.
We are planning on continuing our weeknight training series for intermediate and advanced orienteers once the snow melts, ideally also offering most week as self-directed options. We also plan on having some beginner friendly events, stay tuned for a schedule to be posted.
How to Get Started
The best way to get started is to just come out to any of the events. If you arrive a few minutes before the starting time, we will give you a brief introduction and then you can go around a beginner friendly course that is offered at all our events.
All you need is some clothing you don't mind getting dirty and good footwear, in case the trails are a bit muddy. For insurance reasons, you must become a member of the Sage Orienteering Club in order to participate in local orienteering events.
