RTM 2022 is hosted in part by the Kootenay Orienteering Club. KOC provides insurance coverage for the event, which is actually a very simple orienteering event using electronic timing designed for orienteering. But don’t fret, we did this before and everyone managed just fine! The details of the orienteering event are:
We encourage you to review the map beforehand so you are familiar with the course route ( the route is also marked on race day) and control point locations
Every racer (not Trekkers or Kids Racers) will receive a timing stick the morning of the Festival. Any lost sticks will be charged at $50 each (ouch, you don't want to lose it.)
Each race course has a number of control locations, where you must “check-in” with your supplied timing stick. At the end of the race, you will also “check-in” at the finish control. This gives you split times for each section of the race, as well as your overall time
After finishing, each racer must go to the timing hut to “download” their times and hand in their timing stick.
Race results will be posted here after the race.
RTM is all about fun, but it's still a race. We give awards for Junior 16 and Under, Open 17-49 and Masters over 50 in our competitive events. If there are less than 3 entries in the Masters category they will be combined with the Open Categories.
Kids awards will also be given to those 12 & under, in the Adventure Kids race.
There will be a special award should a new course record time be set for the 20 km Bike and 10K & 20K Run events.
