The Kimberley Nordic Trails are now on-line and available through the GAIA Gps app. This is good because 1) it snowed last night and 2) it will help you pin-point the location of our mystery couple from yesterday's contest. (see previous post). You can also download a jpeg or pdf of the map at https://kootenayorienteering.com/maps/view/497

Everyone likes a challenge and a contest. If you can pin point the location of these two people (ok, not real people) on the Nordic Centre Map then re-post the map in your reply, or PM you could win two tickets to the Dec. 2nd concert at McKim featuring the Sultans of String and Symphony of the Kootenays. Person with the closest mark by Nov. 18 wins. If there is a tie, we’ll do a draw. Sultans of String. Kimberley, British Columbia

Welcome

Who are we? The Kootenay Orienteering Club hosts orienteering and trail running events in the Kootenay region of British Columbia, in particular, in the Rossland, Cranbrook and Kimberley areas. 

Orienteering

More than just a run, orienteering combines fitness, strategy, map reading, and navigation skills to find a series of pre-set check -points.  

Trail Running

Trail running get's you off the roads and onto softer ground. Whether running along a forest trail, over a hill or through an open field, training running can be both invigorating and great for your health.

Why Just Run?

Our focus is to have fun while you run. The best way to get started is to just come out to any of the orienteering or trail running events. Our Thursday night TNT's are a perfect place to get started. If you arrive a few minutes before the starting time, we will give you a brief introduction and then you can go around all or part of a course, on your own or with someone else. It's easy to learn and a lot of fun.
