THE RACE

JUNE 19, 2022

Race Timing

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.

 

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.

Kids awards will also be given to those 12 & under, in the Adventure Kids race. 

Course Record

There will be a special award should a new course record time be set for the 20 km Bike and 10K & 20K Run events.

Professional Photographer Onsite

We have professional photographer Aric Keane and his team this year, snapping photos of our racers.

THE RACE CHALLENGES

10KM RUN


One runner on a challenging but shorter trail run. For those who want to get back to the festival more quickly! This is a fun, challenging trail run with a couple of tough climbs and lots of beautiful singletrack. After descending into the Kimberley Nature Park, you’ll climb back out to join with the main Round the Mountain route. So you get the same great finish down the Magic Line. Start Time: 8:30 AM Course Map (PDF) Elevation Profile (PDF)




KIDS RACES


One energetic child. Running, mountain biking, and other fun activities. For kids 12 and under. With ages ranging from 3 to 12, we'll split the kids into 2 groups: RTM Kiddie Extreme (6 & under) and RTM Adventure Kids (12 & under). Climbing Wall, orienteering maze, and other fun activities to keep the kids busy the rest of the time.

  • RTM Kiddie Extreme @ 2:00 PM: run & bike a 700m course.
  • RTM Adventure Extreme @ 2:30 PM: run & bike a 3.2 km course
Start Time: 2:00 PM and 2:30 PM Course Map (PDF)




ROUND THE MOUNTAIN - 20KM RUN


One runner, one mountain. You run all the way around. This will not be a fast course, and you're unlikely to be setting a PB on the day. Be prepared for some tough climbs, and plenty of technical, rocky sections. Average times will be over 2 hours with an expected winning time near 1:20 Start Time: 10:45 AM Course Map (PDF) Elevation Profile




ROUND THE MOUNTAIN - 20KM TREK


Our most popular event. One hiker, one mountain. Start early and take it easy. Walk all the way around. This event is untimed. Start Time: 7:00 AM Course Map (PDF) Elevation Profile




ROUND THE MOUNTAIN - 20KM BIKE


One bike, one rider, one mountain, lots of single track. 2 new 3km purpose built mountain bike single tracks were completed in 2014. Don't miss your chance to ride these amazing new trails. The winning time should be somewhere around 1:20, and Intermediate riders should allow at least 2hrs to complete the 20 km loop. You don't need to be an expert Mountain Biker, but there are some very technical sections, and beginners should be prepared to walk some sections.
