This event will be one of our typical Street-O or Urban-O events where you must navigate to the centre of control circles on an urban style map and describe some sort of feature or answer a question to prove you have found the location. This year we will use our LakeHill Map, start location Beckwith Park. The map area includes lots of parkland: Outerbridge Park, Rithet's Bog, Beckwith Park, Lochside Trail, Blenkinsop Lake and Royal Oak Trail. The south half of the map is flat and suitable for families with strollers and newcomers. The north half has a few hilly suburban areas with lots of obscure cut-through pathways. The region is bounded by McKenzie, Quadra, Lochside Trail and Royal Oak Avenue. Date and Time: Sunday, January 28th, registration from 12:15PM-12:45PM, mass start at 1 PM Location: Beckwith Park, parking lot off Beckwith Avenue near intersection with Belvedere Road, Saanich Orienteering Style: Urban orienteering Score Event, 90 minutes allowed to find as many locations as possible, answer a question to prove you have found said location, find them in any order.

Welcome to the Victoria Orienteering Club

Orienteering is an outdoor adventure activity involving navigation by map and a compass. It is enjoyed as a recreational activity or a challenging competitive sport.

The best way to get started is to just come out to any of the events. If you arrive a few minutes before the starting time, we will give you a brief introduction and then you can give it a try. It's easy to learn and a lot of fun. Fees are: $8 adult or $5 youth per map.  All participants must become club members for $5 per year.  Memberships are free for any first-time participants.

For more information about orienteering, see our Orienteering Links  page.
