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 events throughout the southern interior of BC.
We hosted the 32nd annual Sage Stomp this past year in the Sabiston Creek area. Next year we will once again be hosting the Sage Stomp ono the May long weekend. Unfortunately we will not be holding any rogaines or long adventure runs this year.
This fall will have at least three weeknight events on Wednesday evenings (possibly more if we have a good turnout and can find organizers) as well as a couple of Sunday events. Check the calendar page for full schedule. Kamloops events have a green font.
Fall events in Salmon Arm will run throughout September on Thursday evenings. Salmon Arm events all have a red font.
Revelstoke events are in blue. There is one event planned this fall on a map of Mount Macpherson, although we may have another in downtown Revelstoke!
Vernon and Kelowna
No events are currently planned, but there may be some impromptu training showing up in the schedule this fall at UBC-O or Mission Creek for the university students and others in the area. These will have a purple font. Stay tuned
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. Membership fees are: $5 for a one time try out of orienteering; $20 for individual adults for the season, $10 for youth and $40 for a family for the season. Membership is valid for the entire calendar year and is payable at either the first event you attend. Membership includes liability insurance through the Canadian Orienteering Federation insurance policy.
Our events are in the Kamloops and Salmon Arm areas, and usually have a couple of different course levels. There is a fee of $5 per person per event.
