Event information: SOS - 2 Term 4 Bobbin Head

Export to calendar Back

Located within Ku-ring-gai National Park, Bobbin Head is a mecca for trail running, bush walking, canoeing and boating, fishing, road cycling plus picnics.  So after a run, why not stay on and make the most of all that the Park has to offer.

PRE-ENTER BY 12PM THURSDAY 22 October 2020.

Event Date: Saturday 24 October 2020

Start window: 9:30am to 11am
(we encourage participants who are at risk or especially vulnerable to COVID-19 to start early in each start block)

Start and Finish: Please note that there is a 500m walk to the start plus 500m back from the finish to the download (but lovely bush land and wallabies to see along the walk).

Venue: Kalkari Discovery Centre, 402 Ku-Ring-Gai Chase Rd, Mount Colah

NPWS fee: A park entry fee of $12 per car will also apply on entry to the Park for this event (unless you already have a National Park Annual Pass)


In addition to our usual suite of courses (Warm Up, Score, Short Line, Long Line), for this event, we will be offering an extra course (Run Bobbo).  It's ideal if you are a trail runner and keen to try running with a map in hand.  The course sticks to trails and open areas so you can run hard but you will need to try a little nav too.  The course is a bit over 5km of running with plenty of climb, so don't expect an easy day out.

The Warm Up course will be longer than usual - around 2km.

Course Closure: 12pm

Entry Limitations due to COVID: None at this stage.

Entry: All event attendees must pre-register. This includes spectators and all group members. Register either via Eventor or the Bold Horizons web site event listing.

More information on SOS events including course options is available on the Bold Horizons Saturday Orienteering Series web page and the Bold Horizons Event Listing for event specifics. See www.boldhorizons.com.au.
