This fall in Kelowna we are organizing a series of lowkey orienteering trainings on some existing maps and a couple of new areas. They are beginner friendly, but also have longer options. Expect two courses at each training - a shorter, easier course that is suitable for beginners and families, as well as a longer more technical course for everyone else. Please remember this is entirely volunteer organized, so please pitch in to help out if you can. The more volunteers we get - the longer into the fall we can keep this series going.


  • 6:00 - Sign In, Beginner Instructions, and Registration Starts
  • 6:15 -Last Start
  • 7:30 - Courses Close

Meeting Location:

At the north end of Hollywood Road N. There is some free street parking along the dead-end road, but no official parking lot.


There are a few safety considerations on this map, including some small cliffs, deadfall, and the potential for some animal encounters. Please wear highly visible/reflective clothing and consider bringing a headlight. Full leg cover recommended, this map has some undergrowth that is a little bit scratchy.


Registration is not yet open.


This is a series of low key orienteering events using simple temporary markers and no electronic timing. If you wish to record your own time and route using a watch, phone, or GPS please feel free. We will endeavour to post times of those who participated and report their times. You MUST still check in at the finish so that we know you are out of the woods and do not start looking for you.


There is no cost to participate in these trainings, however membership in the Sage Orienteering Club is required.
