I regret to inform you that the Foot-O orienteering event on June 12, 2022 has been cancelled due to an injury on the part of the organizer. Please check our website or our Facebook page for future events.

A Foot-O is an event where participants follow a course in the order set by the organizer. All controls must be found in the given order. Multiple courses will be available for different levels of ability.

There will be several courses. Easier courses will be shorter with controls placed in easy-to-find locations. Harder courses will be longer and controls will be hidden off-trail for the more adventurous participants!

COURSES

  • 1. Beginner (under 2 km): A good introductory course for beginners. Controls located along trails.
  • 2. Intermediate (2-3 km): Many controls are located off the trails. Map reading skills are an asset.
  • 3. Short Advanced (3-4 km): Controls are located off the trails. Challenging route choices. Good map reading skills required.
  • 4. Advanced (4-5 km): Same controls -- tougher layout. Good map reading skills required.

A Call to Volunteers!

Orienteering New Brunswick (ONB) is a run by volunteers who are passionate about the sport and volunteer their time to create a fun experience for everyone. Did you know that without volunteers, we wouldn't have any orienteering events in New Brunswick? The fees collected at each event cover the costs for permits, insurance, map printing, supplies, and equipment used at the event. They don’t cover planning, organizing, or running the event. It is only through the generous volunteer effort of club members by which these events can happen!

How can you help? We need help with:

  • registration
  • picking up controls afterwards
  • promotion of events
