2021 Turkey Trot
It has been sometime since we have held an event up at Mansfield. This locations has some great terrain as it is located on the Niagara escarpment. There is an extensive network of trails suitable for running.
We now have photos of the race for you all to view! Click below to view!
Sep 10th - 28th
TOUR DE ISLANDS
For the FINAL course of 2021 we have something a bit different. It is a pt to pt course with 21 controls starting at Hanlan's Pt ferry docks and finishing at Ward's Island ferry docks. It will take you all the way across the Toronto Islands and you will discover many interesting spots, especially the beautiful, deserted, secluded beaches. BUT, only 12 of the controls are marked on the map. Nine of the controls are described only by clues. You will have to use your deductive and observational skills to find these.
In the download folder you will find: the complete course, expanded copies of the West and Central parts of the course, the clues, a descriptive (tourist map) of the islands which may help you.
ALL controls are marked by SMALL orange ribbons, with "S15" written on them - you will have to look carefully to find them.

2021 Walker Woods Adventure
posted on Jul 28th, 2021 by Andrew
While there is a break in the weekly series we have a new multi-sport GPS course for TOC members out at Walker Woods Forest starting this week! Get out your mountain bike AND running shoes this time around! A great outing this long weekend!
Orienteering, in the classical sense, is “cross-country running using a map and a compass.” Often called “cunning running” or “adventure running”, this is a thinking sport where you have to navigate a preset course of “control” locations in a park or forest using only your map, compass and your wits.
Orienteering is a fun and educational sport. We offer school programs and orienteering events for schools at various levels and coaching workshops for teachers and group leaders.
If you are planning a company outing this summer, consider orienteering for a unique and exciting alternative to typical corporate excursions. Not enough time to get outdoors? We can bring orienteering into your office as well.
