Export to calendar Back

EMBARGO All areas covered by the Petticoat Gully orienteering map, Creswick.

This is a National League event, and also event 2 in the Vic Autumn series. Due to uncertainty of potential entries from interstate NOL teams - border restrictions and quarantine periods - watch this space in mid-February for any changes. The competition area will be in the Creswick Regional Park.

Orienteering is a naturally physically distanced activity, so come along and enjoy the competition, the outdoor environment and Victoria’s great orienteering terrain! If you do find yourself close to others, please respect and follow rules for physical distancing, mask wearing and hygiene.

Everyone is welcome. Courses are available to suit all abilities from beginner to experienced. Coaching and assistance is available to newcomers.

There are five Vic Autumn courses on offer (hard to easy) plus a 2-hour Score course, as well as the National League courses.

As part of the Vic Autumn Series, if you choose the same course at each event, you can compare your results with others on it across the series, but this is not an obligation – choose whichever course suits you. But do note the course closure time – you need to be back by then.
