THE RACE

SUNDAY JUNE 25th, 2023

Race Timing

RTM 2023 is hosted in part by the Kootenay Orienteering Club. KOC provides the race with 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

 

Results

Race results will be posted here after the race.

 

Awards

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

Courses

2023 see's the debut of NEW routes through the Nordic Centre for the 10km Run, 20km Run, 20km MTB and kids races. Utilising many of the new trails built as part of the Electrify the Mountain project and keeping the runners and mountain bikers separate to the finish. The Mountain Bike route winds up the new Higgins Hill before steadily climbing up Ohm My and finishing with a flowy descent on Amps Go Marching. The runners cut across the Nordic Centre and get to enjoy magnificent views across the valley as they work their way up the technical Yikes! trail before descending and traversing to the finish area.
