Explains a bit about some of the differences between running in orienteering running and on a track or road. Put together by the Barbados Orienteering Federation.
Great run tonight! 11 humans, 5 dogs. Snow!!!! We "human-handled" two fallen trees off the trail. Two runaways who returned at the trail head. Thanks all for a great run. See you next week.
Late post as I was stuffing my face and enjoying family time yesterday! I will be running off turkey and dressing tonight at 6pm! Meet me at Higgins St. Last week before we will need headlamps.
Taken any good photos in the Park this year? They may be worth $500

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.
