Summer Orienteering

For those of you who don't flee the city during the summer we often offer either a training program or a set of events.  With many of our club members travelling to the national championships and others planning summer vacations, these summer events  or programs ((July and August) may not be planned well in advance.  

Whether it is training or events, they will be posted on the Upcoming Events column on our home page.  Check throughout June or contact us if you would like to help out or to initiate a series.  Details of any series of events or training (upcoming or most recent) follows.

Summer Sprint 2018

Four Sprint events with evening orienteering and finishing with a night-o

Orienteering Ottawa is excited to offer our Summer series this summer as a set of sprint events.The first 3 events will be held Wednesday evenings and for the finale we return to the Rivermead golf course on Friday, September 7.

There will be 2 courses  to choose from: Short (2 km)  or Long (3.5 km) Sprint  or you can do the long and follow with the short if time allows.
These events are designed for everyone - whether you'd like to walk and focus on improving your navigation skills, or challenge your race skills against your friends and club-mates.
Regular meet fees apply, and  Season's Passes will be honoured.
As this is the first time running this Series please confirm your attendance for each meet by midnight of the previous day. 
Note: these events will use the classic SPORTident punching.
Some details may change through the summer.  Be sure to check back for final details before each meet.
