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.
Upcoming 2018 Events
Our AGM is scheduled for December 12th in Salmon Arm. A ski-O will also likely be scheduled sometime during the winter at Larch Hills.
Thanks for a great year in 2018 everyone! In 2019 we are planning on hosting three main events: OART in Vernon/Kelowna, and Sage Stomp (Kamlmoops), and a Fall Two Day Classic (Revelstoke). More details to come.
Kamloops local events take place on Wednesday evenings, normally starting in May.
Just like in 2018, the plan for 2019 is a few scattered Sunday Regional events, as well as Monday evening events throughout May and June once the Wild Soles Trail Running Series finishes.
Revelstoke events are in blue. We are still figuring out the 2019 schedule - stay tuned as we figure out how to build off a very successful 2018 BCOC Orienteering Championships in Revelstoke.
The Inaugural Okanagan Adventure Running Tournament was a success in May 2018, so we are hoping to have another similar event next year! There is possibly some small local events as well if enough people nag David (and volunteer to help out too).
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 is super cheap, so go sign up today on our membership page. 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, Salmon Arm, and Revelstoke (and now Okanagan!) areas, and usually have a couple of different course levels. There is a fee of $5 per person per event.
