Off the roads, off the trails, through the forest and grass we go.
Run up to SW Passage viewpoint for the win. Took advantage of the nice weather and ran an hour and a half tonight. Losing the light fast though! See you next week!
What a great start to Junior Adventure Runners 2016. We have 21 enthusiastic and fit (I can't keep up with them) 9-16yos: 9 girls and 12 boys. Last week was the kick off to this year's clinic and thanks to Danica from WildsafeBC for the bear awareness presentation at Swan Ave. This past Saturday we were up at the Nordic Centre and next Saturday we will be in Cranbrook at the COTR. We are fortunate to have lots of great maps to chose from in the Kimberley/Cranbrook area. #kidswholovetorun #kidswholovemaps #kimberleybc
Is the weekend nearly over already?!? Looks like Monday will be a great day to go running. Join us at 6pm at Higgins St Nature Park entrance.
There is a trail work party happening on Thursday night. We are meeting at the Nordic Centre at 5:45pm. If you have a metal rake or a Pulaski bring it along as well as gloves. Hope to work about 1 1/2 hrs on magic line 3 and sidecut. Would love to see some of you out.


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. 


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.
