Registration will be cleaned up by the end of the weekend with respect to course/class offerings...

With that said, we’ll be following the same template as last year’s Ontario Championships.

Scroll to the top of the page just below the ‘Race Details’ heading.

All of Arkell Hills is made up of private land.

Although we haven't received permission to use the whole map proper..(we're still trying, and will eventually get there!!!)...we are super grateful to the landowners who have welcomed us, listened to us with an open mind, tried to understand what the heck we wanted to do on their land, and were generally tolerant with uninvited visits, phone calls, and emails.

Every lot within the map has a different character, and in the end this is what might make the map so special. Remnants of old farms and homesteads, planted trees maturing, rough open land thickening up, new trails appearing/old ones vanishing...

To celebrate this, instead of posting full versions of the old maps, I'm going to post map snippets of different vintages of the different properties every once inawhile...

Here's a couple to start:

Sloot Property (1985):


Hamilton Property (1976):


More to come...

Green dashed line?

Distinct Vegetation Boundary in ISOM2017 and ISOM2017-V2. Mappers have the option of using either the dashed green or the traditional linear black dots.

For areas with lots of trails and rock and minimal thick vegetation, the dashed green line is a better option to improve legibility.

Minor change...

Day 2 will be a traditional long/classic, rather than a chase. Same course! No chase.

Course details/lengths coming soonish!

In the meantime, some lovely terrain pics from February!

Awesome Mark! I'm really looking forward to this race weekend. Arkell Hills is one of my fave areas to orienteer in Canada. Looking forward to running on Jeff's new map! The map samples look great.
