Open courses

Open courses are offered for both (Long and Middle) races for less experienced orienteers and beginners. On these courses, there is no age limit. You can select the course according to your technical skill level and physical abilities. There are no awards for open classes.

Embargoed Areas

The competition terrains will be out of access for registered participants until the start. The following pictures show the embargoed areas:

Electronic timing system:

On both race days, the SportIdent (SI) timing system will be used.

Note to members of the Ramblers Club: The SI system is different from the SFR system we are currently using at our local events. If you don’t have an SI stick, you will have to rent one for the event (can be added during the registration process). Information on how to use the SI system will be provided in the event notes closer to the event.

Awards

For each race, awards will be presented to the winners of each age class.
Medal winners of the Eastern Canadian Championships must be full members of a club associated with Orienteering Ontario, Orienteering Quebec, Orienteering New Brunswick or the Orienteering Association of Nova Scotia.

Accommodation

The arenas of the races are within 20 min (13 km) from each other.
There are many hotels in and around the Island of Montreal.
Camping is also available. One of the biggest camping sites in the area is Camping D’Aoust, located a 20 minutes’ drive from both maps: http://www.campingdaoust.com

O-Store

The O-Store will be set up in the race arenas on both event days. This is a great opportunity to buy orienteering equipment, such as compasses, SI sticks, control description holders, glasses, gaiters, clothing, shoes, gifts or other orienteering gadgets.
