In July 2011 the Yukon Orienteering Association will host both the Western Canadian Orienteering Championships and the Canadian Orienteering Championships over two consecutive weekends.
- Seven days of racing on seven different areas.
- Events both in Whitehorse and a short distance south of Whitehorse.
- A combination of new areas and fully revised maps of seldom used areas.
- Three World Ranking Events (WRE).
- The six WCOC and COC events will all be Canadian Orienteering Federation sanctioned A-meets.
There will be a High Performance Program fundraiser race, the Canadian Orienteering Federation Conference and Annual General Meeting, the Sass Peepre National Junior Training Camp, and a wrap up banquet.
The Whitehorse area offers a variety of terrain and forest types. Whitehorse is located in the boreal forest consisting predominantly of black spruce. Meadows, open pine forest, and aspen glades are also common. The terrain is dominated by glacial deposits with the resulting eskers, pothole lakes, kame-kettle topography, and streams. Some map areas are very technical.
Surrounded by vast wilderness, Whitehorse is a modern city with the amenities you would find in a much larger centre. The Yukon is known for its wilderness landscapes, wildlife, fascinating history, and friendly people. We hope you'll join us in the land of the midnight sun for a great week of orienteering!
