Map: Lower Postill
April 14: Registration deadline extended to 12:00 noon on April 15.
This first event of the 2023 Kelowna orienteering calendar takes place in the fantastic detailed terrain on the Lower Postill map behind the Kelowna airport.
The Lower Postill terrain is a beautiful open forest with numerous rock and contour features and a significant trail network.
This activity will be on the same newly expanded map as last year's event here. For those who've done previous events here, the former sprint standard map has been redrafted to a forest standard and expanded to include new terrain. If you missed running on this fantastic new map last year, come check it out!
