Wednesday Evening Orienteering (WEO) Event

  • Regular orienteering on Wednesday evenings - this means in-person with control flags and SI units in the terrain from 6:30-8pm on the day of the event.
  • At this point we are anticipating 20 events but this number is dependent on volunteer course planners.
  • You will need an SI stick; you can borrow one from the club on the night of the event if you do not own one.
  • You will have to pre-register for the events.
  • The last day to register for each Wednesday event is the Monday evening before it to guarantee we have a map printed for you.
  • You will need to be a 2024 member of Foothills Orienteering (FWOC), a 2024 member of another Canadian orienteering club, or pay the non-member event fee.
  • We will be using Maprun so, if you registered for the event, you can run anytime if you do not want to run on the evening of the event.
  • There will be about 20 Wednesday Orienteering Evenings in the series.

Wednesday Orienteering Payment Options

There are two ways to pay for the Wednesday Evening Orienteering (WEO) events:

  1. You can pay for each event separately, as late as the Monday before the event. Each event costs $5 per member or $10 for non-members.
  2. You can purchase a WEO Series Pass for $50 and pay for all the events at one time. You DO NOT have to attend all the events but if you might attend 11 or more then the WEO Season Pass is a good deal for you. If you know what events you will miss (because of vacation, for example), you can ask for a pdf of the map and run another time. There will be no WEO during the Canadian Orienteering Championships.

The family discount does not apply to the WEO Series Pass. The family discount (which you get when registering for individual events) is the better deal for very large families. The WEO Series Pass is the better deal for families of three if you plan to attend 12 + events. The WEO Series Pass provides a better discount for a family of four if you think you will all get to 15 + events

The WEO Series Pass only applies to Wednesday events; it does not apply to forest events not hosted on a Wednesday.

Registration for individual events and the WEO season pass will open soon.

NOTE: After having registered for an event, you can make changes to your course selection on the Interpodia (2M) website.

  1. Login.
  2. Go to "Event Registrations" section in the menu on the left side of the screen.
  3. Click on the “Manage” button on the event you want to revise.
  4. Click view/edit registration.
  5. Click on the edit button on Course Selection. Revise your selection there; for example, if you won't be able to attend unexpectedly, you can choose to get a map PDF instead.

Orienteering relies on volunteers

Consider volunteering on a regular basis to help make orienteering happen in Calgary. We need volunteers to plan courses, to help with sign-in and check out, to be the "Ask Me" Volunteer (explaining the event/orienteering to the general public at the site) or to pick up controls afterwards. Plan to volunteer every fourth or sixth time you run. Please lend a hand when you can. Email [email protected] for more information or to volunteer.
