Venue: Bicentennial Park, Prince of Wales Drive, West Pymble.
Map: "Quarry Creek"

And how better to begin than to reprise the magical West Pymble map that was meant to be our Season 29 finale. And not only are we 'reprising', we are adding. Yes folks, you can expect a whole lot of new area here, as Hamish & Amanda have extended the map down to the Lane Cover River. Think bush track. Think fire trail. Think - I'm in!!

The Sydney Summer Series (also known as Sydney Map Running) offers great summer orienteering in Sydney, utilising the city's best parks, reserves, beaches, harbour-side and bush areas. Join us for the action packed 30th season.

This is a 45 minute score course event with starts from 4.00pm until 6.45pm. A free MINI course is also available. Note if starting late, a head torch might be advisable. Car parking is available within the park and in the surrounding streets. Please DO NOT use the carpark attached to the West Pymble Bicentennial Club (located on the left as you enter Prince of Wales Drive).

The event will be COVID safe. Please read the COVID safety document linked below. The course map will be available on Eventor the evening before, so you can study it before you arrive.

Pre-entry using Eventor is strongly recommended; enter-on-the-day facilities at the event are limited and will be focused on helping newcomers. You can enter using Eventor until 6.44pm on the day of the event but to assist organisers and minimize delays we recommend entering at least 24 hours prior. And remember, if you have purchased a Summer Series season pass, you do not need to enter individual events.

Newcomers are welcome. Please follow the instructions in the 'How to Register as a Casual and Enter an Event' document linked below. Please note there are separate documents for entry using a PC and using a mobile.
