A very interesting BBC 1 hour show about the history and making of the British Ordinance Survey maps. These same principles were used in the production of early orienteering maps. Started in 1791, with the invention of the theodolite, Britain not only used this instrument to map England but the whole of the British Empire.

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.
