Club Membership

All participants must be a member of a Canadian orienteering club affiliated with Orienteering Canada, or a club affiliated with another national body recognized by the IOF. If you aren't a member of a club you may join the Yukon Orienteering Association when you pick up your race package.

Course And Category Guidelines

See the tables below or this Orienteering Canada document for details. A total of 10 courses are offered for long and middle-distance courses. For sprint races, 5 courses are offered.

For the WCOC, we offer open categories on courses 1-7 and group categories for courses 1-3. If you register for an open category, and select the sprint race, you will be assigned a course as follows:

  • Open 1/2 moves to sprint course 1
  • Open 3/4/5 moves to sprint course 2
  • Open 6/7 moves to sprint course 3

For non-championship age class 21-34, we recommend Open W6 for women and Open M7 for men. If you choose these classes, you will be placed on course 3 for the sprint.

SI Cards

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

Competitors who do not have an SI card can rent one at $2 per event (you don't need to pay for days for which you're not participating in an event), or $5 for all three events. Competitors who don't return their rental SI cards will be charged a $70 replacement fee.

No Child Minding

There will be no child minding at any of the events. If you wish to have an early/late start times with another person, you will have the opportunity to request this when you register in Zone4.

Zone4 and Payment

We are using Zone4 to process the registrations. They accept Visa and MasterCard for online payments. If you want to pay by cheque or money order, you may do so by completing the registration and selecting the Cash/Cheque payment option.

Make cheques payable in Canadian dollars to "Yukon Orienteering Association" and mail to:
4061 4th Avenue Whitehorse, YT Y1A 1H1 Canada

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:

  • Class to be entered in each event.
  • SI number if you own an SI card.
  • IOF ID if applicable.
  • Year of birth.

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


All participants must present a signed waiver when picking up a race package.

Change Fee

The fee for changes to registration is $20.00.

Refund Policy

  • Until May 15, full refund less $40 administration fee.
  • From May 16 to June 1, 75% refund (minimum $40 withheld).
