Season Hightlights 2017

The 2017 season has started, and there are many exciting events scheduled in the coming months. Most notable the Eastern Canadian Orienteering Championships (ECOC 2017), which will take place on July 29-30 on two new maps in the West Island. Around the same time, there will be the Sass Peepre Junior Training Camp in Morin Heights, a unique opportunity for young people to get an introduction to orienteering.

The next local event will be the 1. Montreal Short Distance Orienteering Championships on May 14, with six competitive categories. At the same time, we will also offer a Micro-O, a free activity for newcomers & beginners. For more details see our event page.

A new chapter for the Ramblers

We have now a Board of Directors, and we are using the winter to bring the Ramblers Club to the next level. If you want to get involved, please join one of our Working Groups. Everyone is welcome!

Mt. Royal Score-O 2016

The Score-O 2016 came with a challenging course by Sven von Fellenberg. Only two runners managed to get all the controls, and the winning time by Francis Falardeau of 1:41:30 was the longest winning time ever. The runners always needed to navigate precisely to the control feature, as some of the ribbons were hard to see – detailed map reading was required. In the men’s race, Francis Falardeau and Thomas Kneubühler were running head to head for the last ten controls. They both had chosen the same sequence for the ending, which made for an exciting finish. With two controls left, Falardeau took the lead and left Kneubühler 21 seconds behind at the finish. In the Women’s race, Aurore Varela got her title back from defending champion Jessica Auer, who finished this year second. Full results are here!

Thanks to everyone who made this happen, in particular John and Gloria Charlow for handling the registration, Sven von Fellenberg + Flurina for setting all the controls + all the runners who came out for the Score-O 2016!
