No punching the control card, tick the boxes on the card or use MapRunF on your Smartphone.
Please pre-enter, bring a pen and a watch or other timing device.
The course will be available via MapRunF from 8am Saturday, so you can do it any time over the weekend, and again on Monday if you want.
The suburb is very steep.
The course has been set to cover a relatively small area to compensate.
The course has been set to avoid crossing the concrete canal and the ponds in the south and SW of the map. These can become slippery/deep after rain.
Please use road underpasses where possible. There are four underpasses.
There are more structures south of the school than are marked on the map.
This shouldn't affect navigation.
Spigl St, N of #13, is best crossed using the steps.
