Check back for more details, but we typically have several Beginner to Advanced timed SI courses to chose from. Watch for bikes when on the pathways!

  • Beginner: ~1-2km with minimal hills and controls (checkpoints) mostly on trails and pathways.
  • Intermediate: ~2-3km with a few hill climbs and controls on or near trails.
  • Advanced: ~3km+ with more hill climbs and controls requiring more careful navigation and route choices.

You must pre-register for these timed courses by 9AM THE DAY BEFORE the event following the instructions below.

Here is what you need to do to once per year to participate in any Foothills Orienteering Club event:

  1. Each participant must purchase a 2020 Foothills Orienteering membership (including each member of a family orienteering together).
  2. If you purchased your membership before July 1 2020, submit our new annual online waiver here. If you have submitted the new waiver, you will have received an email from Zone4 with subject "Registration Receipt for FWOC/SOGO Orienteering Canada Waivers" or "Registration Receipt for 2020 FWOC Membership (with June 2020 Waiver)".

Here is what you need to do before SI course registration closes 9am on the day BEFORE the event:

  1. Pre-register for one of the courses using this link. You can view the list of confirmed registrations and SI Numbers for this Fall here.

Here is what you need to do as early as possible on the day of the event (but continue to monitor your health throughout the day and do not attend if you are feeling unwell):

  1. Submit a completed Individual Declaration of Health for each attendee (only valid for the day the form is submitted). You can also find this form on go.orienteeringcalgary.ca.
  2. Read the guidelines for participation in Foothills Orienteering Club Events during pandemic. Important points in these guidelines include:
    • If you have any COVID-19 symptoms or have had close contact with someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days, stay home.
    • Practice physical and social distancing including 2m separation from people not within your family or cohort.
    • Bring your own supplies including water as none will be provided.
    • Consider wearing a mask when not out on course.
    • Eliminate contact with communal surfaces at the start and finish areas.
    • Do not touch orienteering flags or ribbons.
    • If using a SI finger stick, place it carefully without touching the unit.
    • Please be sure to follow basic personal hygiene rules and wash/sanitize your hands before and after being on a course.
    • Follow the event organizer’s event specific rules and measures to reduce the risk of contacting or spreading Covid19.
  3. Prepare to bring your own hand sanitizer to the event and consider wearing a mask when not on course to protect yourself and others. You will not be able to register for SI Courses or purchase Foothills Orienteering memberships at this event. We will provide course maps and SI finger sticks to registrants if you are not able to bring your own. We will have some sanitizing and personal protective equipment for our volunteers to use as needed, but please bring your own sanitizer, mask, water, and any other equipment you feel would be helpful to protect yourself and others.
  4. Remember that everyone sees the risks and rewards of outdoor sport during a pandemic differently, so please err on the side of caution and help ensure that everyone at the event (especially the general public) is comfortable with the measures you are taking to ensure physical distancing and personal hygiene.
