World Orienteering Day

Happy World Orienteering Day to everyone! Hopefully you are able to get out and enjoy some orienteering in one of the many different types of terrain Canada has to offer.

I spent the past weekend at the Sage Stomp Training Camp up at McQueen Lake. It was great to get out on some maps and get some good training hours in as I have not done too much orienteering of late. I would love to tell you all about the event but I will leave that up to a separate blog post of its own.

Some of the orienteering adventures I am most looking forward to in the coming year are the Junior World Orienteering Championships in Hungary in July as well as the North American and Canadian Orienteering Championships in Whitehorse this fall. As this will be my first time attending JWOC, I am really looking forward to experiencing the atmosphere of such a big international event. The terrain will also be totally new to me so that will be a great experience. I have heard it is hot in Hungary so hopefully the hot weather we are having now in the Shuswap will pay off and result in an ability to run in hot conditions.

The North Americans also look like a great event with complex terrain that is sure to be challenging and have me confused over things. There are also many other great hiking, biking and exploring opportunities in Whitehorse that will make it a great trip not only for orienteering but for all outdoor adventures.

I hope that everyone has some orienteering opportunities to look forward to as we begin another great orienteering season.
