Venue: Griffith Park, Anzac Avenue, Collaroy.
Map: "Long Reef"

21 YEARS - A LONG TIME BETWEEN DRINKS AT THE 19TH.
Join us as we return to one of the five original SSS venues - the spectacular headland and parks around the golf course of Long Reef. This was a popular early venue, appearing on each of the first six programmes, and for good reason. You fingered your putter, teed off with a 3 wood, ran around the edge - and gazed in awe at the reef and foaming sea from the hill top. Join the old goats as we roar down memory lane in this fast summer flash.

Parking: will be tight along Anzac Ave. Use Pittwater Road (east side) as an alternative.
Food: The Reef Food Bar is directly opposite the assembly area and will be open until 7.30pm. Grab some fish n chips.
Swim: it's only a 2-block walk to the beach, so bring your cossies and towel!

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 as we continue the action packed 30th season.
