Map: Bunker Bench Sprint Map

This Event has Been Cancelled

We couldn't find an organizer for this week's event, so it has been cancelled. Consider heading out to the BC Orienteering Championships in Revelstoke if you want to get some more orienteering in this fall.

This week's orienteering is in the lower portion of Kenna Cartwirght Park, on a map we call Bunker Bench.


This week's event will take place on the Bunker Bench map near TRU in the bottom part of Kenna Cartwright Park. We will meet in the parking lot right by the composting dropoff. See the google map below for the exact location. The map is named after the World War 2 bunkers that were built to store large quantities of ammunition for the Canadian coastal defence forces. Kamloops was considered a safe spot but within easy reach of the coast by rail. The map is at the north eastern edge of Kenna Cartwright Park and is open sagebrush with some complex rock features.


Easy - 1.7 km

Long - 3 km


Each week will follow about the same schedule with each event lasting about an hour and a half
