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.
The Sage Orienteering Club produces high quality orienteering and adventure running events throughout the southern interior of BC.
The 2022 Canadian Orienteering Championships (Kimberley/Cranbrook) and 2022 Western Canadian Orienteering Championships (Alberta Foothills) are close to home with a full week of orienteering from July 1st to 10th.
The 2022 Sage Stomp will be back to its traditional May Long weekend of May 21st to 22nd in the Kamloops area.
Our local event schedule has yet to be decided for 2022 in Kamloops - stay tuned. Our Junior Program (for 7 to 10 year olds) will run weekly from April 8th until June 3rd. Sage Stomp is in Kamloops on May 21st and 22nd.
We have two in person events for the spring scheduled, at Dirty Beetle (Glenemma) on April 3rd and the Skimikin Adventure Run on June 19th (instead of Larch Hills). We will also have the self directed trainings from the past few years in the weeks in between.
We currently have two self directed events scheduled for Revelstoke this year (June and July). In early October we will be hosting a barebones style two day event (exact details still TBD).
We will have a mix of in person and self-directed trainings in Kelowna this spring.
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.
