Come to the 2018 Western Canadian Orienteering Championships - combined with the annual BC/Washington Pig War.

We are very excited to offer forest orienteering on a brand new map at a site (see location pin on map below) located only a 45 minute drive from Vancouver City Hall! The best west coast terrain that we have.

The weekend will start with a Sprint on Saturday morning, at Mundy Park, a local park in Coquitlam. Then we move to the new map in Ioco for the Middle and Sunday's Long event. Along with a social gathering on Saturday evening, it looks to be a great weekend of orienteering and socializing.
