Banquet

The NAOC/COC Banquet will take place in Whitehorse on Monday, August 20th. We hope you will join us! Tickets are available for non-race participants also.

The banquet coincides with the Canadian High Performance Program silent auction fundraiser.

Souvenir Technical Shirt

The NAOC 2018 Orienteering Shirt is only available by pre-order. It will be a Trimtex "Free T-Shirt" with full coverage artwork front and back. The design/colour will be known soon. Visit here for sizing. Shirts are only available until May 31, 2018.

SPORTident Timing Information

We will be using SPORTident finger sticks for electronic control punching for all events.

All competitors must have an SI stick. If you have your own SI stick, please enter its number carefully during registration. (At the start line, the number on your stick must match the number in our records.)

Competitors who do not have an SI stick can rent one at $5 for one event or $10 for all events.

The NAOC/COC Sprint will use touch-free SIAC (SPORTIdent ActiveCard) timing. Use of a SIAC stick is mandatory for MF20E and MF21E, but optional for other classes. SIAC sticks can be rented for $8 each.

Competitors who don't return their rental SI or SIAC sticks will be charged a $60 replacement fee.

Zone4 and Payment

We are using Zone4 to process the registrations. Zone4 accepts Visa and MasterCard only.

When you register, you will be able to include multiple runners with a single payment — so when you go to register have available all information about each person:

You will receive an e-mail receipt for your registration that shows the items that make up the total payment.

Waivers

All participants must present a signed waiver when picking up a race package. Waivers will be available on this website as well as at race package pick-up.

Change Fee

After June 30, 2018, a fee of $20 will be applied for any changes to registration (e.g. changing age class). There is never a fee to change SI number.
