Come join us for a special Wednesday Night meet on World Orienteering Day! This event is also part of Orienteering Canada's National Orienteering Week!

Expect two great courses, fun orienteering on an updated city park map, and just maybe a few special surprises. We'll have volunteers on hand to give instructions to those trying orienteering for the first time.

Registration: Please register in advance on this page if you can, so that we have an idea of how many maps to print. Pre-registration isn't mandatory for this event. Or show up on the day if you don't have a chance to register before.

Where: Meet at Picnic site # 20. Park your vehicle in the Conservatory Parking Lot.

Cost: We have a special rate of $1.00 for this event to help encourage newcomers to try the sport on World Orienteering Day. There is orienteering happening in over 75 countries around the world on May 24, 2017.

What to Expect: Registration check-in will be between 6:00 to 6:30 and the orienteering will run from 6:30 to 8:00. No experience required. All levels welcome. Families are welcome.

What to bring: We suggest wearing running shoes and clothes to be physically active. It's up to you if you want to run or walk. We'll supply the map. Compasses aren't required, but you can bring one if you have one. We will have a few to borrow.
