Orienteering Ottawa's annual fall orienteering festival, Ottawa O-Fest is at once a fun run, a Canada Cup Series event, the Ontario Championships, a party in the woods, a time with nature...

This year we are again holding a two-day chasing start format. Saturday will feature a middle distance race followed by a long distance chasing start on Sunday where you have to catch the people who were ahead of you on Saturday.

But wait, what is orienteering?

Why not?

We love the crazy sport of orienteering and want to share that love with you. What better way to do that than with a weekend of competition, food, and friends in one of the nicest times of the year in Ottawa?

That's why our volunteers put thousands of hours into hosting events throughout the year and the O-Fest weekend is no exception. It might be a larger event but we still do it because we love it.
