Saturday and Sunday at the Ottawa OFest we are offering traditional novice and intermediate courses with day-of registration on both Saturday afternoon in Orleans and Sunday morning in Larose Forest (further east). You can do either course as an individual or a family. For details of OFest see

Saturday day-of-registration event details:
Saturday's courses will take you through some beautiful open forest in the Chapel Hill neighbourhood in Orleans and a brand new map showing you lots of hidden gems in the woods.

The finish and registration are in Chapel Hill Park on Forest Valley Dr. Parking will be on the street or nearby parking lots in the local area, within easy walking distance of the finish 'arena'.

Here are the details you should know:

Novice - 2.8 km, 15 controls, 900m walk to start via a marked route
Intermediate - 2.3 km, 13 controls, 500m walk to start via a marked route

You can start either course any time between 1 and 2 pm. Registration will be open from 11:30.
