Fall season 2019

Fall has always been the best time for orienteering, and this year is not any different. In the coming weeks, the schedule is packed with many events, some close to Montreal, and others further away.

The highlight of the fall season is the Boulder Dash in New Hampshire, a 4-hour drive south of Montreal, on October 18-19. It is a two-day classic event – and also the US Masters Nationals – definitely worth the trip. On the following weekend, Rogaine enthusiast can go to the Gatineau Park and Challenge the GATs on Saturday. The day after, the Ramblers are hosting their traditional event at Morgan Arboretum, on Sunday October 27.

The last big event of the season will be the Ontario Championship in Guelph, with a Sprint, Middle and Long Distance event on November 2-3. On the same weekend, the Ramblers are planning their annual Score-O a beginner event called Time to change- discover Orienteering on Mont Royal. It takes place instead of the traditional Score-O, which has been cancelled for this year.

Full calendar and more details as usual on our events page.

COC 2019 at Kinadapt

Morning at the arena of the COC 2019 long competition. See how everyone is getting slowly ready for another race.

We made it!

The COC Week is over, and we are all full of fond memories. It was great to have Canada’s orienteering community in our region, and also come together as a club and organize an event which would have been unthinkable only a few years ago!

O-Week this Summer

If you are around in the second half of July, you might want to join one of  the events of the COC 2019 Week , which will take place from July 20-28. It starts with the Ottawa O-Fest on the weekend of July 20/21, and will end with the Canadian Orienteering Championship 2019 in Rawdon on July 27/28, with some races in Morin Heights and Laval in between. All the events have courses for Novice runners as well (so called Open categories). And it is at the same time a chance to run with the best runners from the country, so there will be something for everyone!

For some events pre-registration is required. See the event page for the COC 2019 Week for  full schedule and details.

+ Volunteers:
It is the first time that the Rambler are organizing the Canadian Orienteering Championship, and we will need many volunteers on the weekend from July 26 to 28. Even when volunteering you can still participate in the event. Interested? You can sign up here or contact our volunteer coordinator at volunteers@ramblersoc.ca
