Welcome to the 2019 Alberta Orienteering Championships!
Join us June 29 and 30th at Sheep River Provincial Park for an awesome weekend of racing in the natural beauty of the foothills of the Canadian Rockies. The events will be held on challenging but fun map at Sandy McNabb. Courses for all events will be suitable for all ages and levels of experience - the 2019 Alberta Champs is a chance for beginners to try out their new skills on courses designed for novice orienteers and a chance for veteran orienteers to put their technical skills as well as their fitness to the test on the challenging terrain at Sandy McNabb.
Of course orienteering is not just about the racing! Catching up with orienteering friends from other clubs is a big part of the weekend. To that end, we added a fun relay event on Saturday afternoon followed by a BBQ hosted by the Alberta Orienteering Association (AOA). All race participants and volunteers can enjoy the BBQ at no added cost, and we will have a $5 BBQ ticket option for any race supporters (parents). The AOA will present Medals from the Middle event during the BBQ. Medals for the Long will be presented immediately following the Long on Sunday.
Come on out to southern Alberta for the July long weekend and enjoy some good orienteering on terrific terrain and some fun socializing with your orienteering new and old friends.
