Knife Creek map
(South of 150 Mile House)

Location: Alex Fraser Research Forest (Knife Creek Block) starting on Rodeo Drive
Registration: 12:30-1:00 pm
Start time: Staggered starts - anytime up to 1:30pm


Directions: From 150 Mile House, drive south on Highway 97 for 5.5 km and turn LEFT onto Rodeo Drive and follow the signs. Park at the end of Rodeo Drive. Watch for the orange and white flags

This is a "point to point" timed event where you go to the controls in the specified order. There will be a Novice (1.7km) and an Intermediate (2.5 km) course set up. Electronic timing was quite a hit with kids at the Marsh Magic Festival last weekend, so we will again be using SportIdent electronic timing for the Novice course. Although the Novice Course is on trails, it is a forested area so children should be supervised (or shadowed) if doing the course on thier own.

You are welcome to do a course with a partner or as a family group. If new to orienteering, you may do the Novice course then try the Intermediate Course (if time allows).


Maps will be provided. A compass is recommended, no other special equipment is required. Hiking boots or running shoes and hiking/running attire are suitable. We recommend you bring a water bottle especially if the weather is warm. Printed instructions and an instructor will be available to assist you before you start a course. Walk or run and you may orienteer as an individual, with a partner, or go as a group or family.

Fees: Adult $10, Under 20 yrs $5, Family maximum $20
Please note: A Club Membership* and a signed waiver is required for all events and will be available at registration.
