There is a cross country running team at the University, but their season ended in November (I do regret not asking to join in on their practices though, and will probably ask for next year).
In terms of more public clubs, I can only find one, and they run once a week on Saturdays at 7:30am. Unfortunately, it looks like almost all their routes start and finish a long ways from where I live, and by taking public transit (I have no car) would take me almost 45 minutes to get to (if there is even a bus at that time). The university is not very centrally located in Kelowna, it's around 25 minutes by car from downtown - and public transit is awful here.
So not really sure what the solution is, waiting for the snow to melt so I can get onto some of the rough forest maps of the surroundings hills for some more mental stimulation, but that will probably be at least another month.
Can you send me the idea? I'm intrigued, I haven't really been thinking about the graphic design aspect too much yet (other than maybe contrasting the boxy approach of SART with a flowy Ogopogo
based theme), focusing on school and mapping when I have time at the moment. I'm not overly convinced with calling it OART, but couldn't come up with anything better - happy to change the name (ideally to something Kelowna rather than Okanagan based, mostly because of the US/Canada spelling issue potentially causing trouble, but it would then restrict our future venue selection).
Unfortunately, we just decided this week to push back the event by 1 week, to May 5th/6th. UBCO, our Sunday event site has a massive cheerleading tournament planned the same weekend, as well as professional cleaning of the entire campus (all the students have just moved out from winter term the week before), so it would have been a zoo. Pushing it back a weekend means we'll have the campus to ourselves, and can book an indoor room for the day as well. Nobody else seems to have scheduled events on this date yet according to WhyJustRun and Attackpoint, so hopefully haven't made any new conflicts.
