Export to calendar Back

Location: Oval 2,Boronia Park near corner of Park Rd and Princes St, Hunters Hill.

Descriptions are now on Eventor as well the back of maps.

SPRINT #1: Finish off your weekend with the challenge of navigating while running at speed. The Sydney Sprint season features great short courses on intricate sprint maps, usually at 1:4000.

This evening, expect something a little different from the usual school grounds, with buildings & canopies and stairs & fences - this event is a bush sprint. So, expect the same intricate courses, with fast running and lots of route choice and changes in direction.

DO NOT ATTEND if you are unwell or if you must self-isolate under NSW Health COVID guidance (see https://www.nsw.gov.au/covid-19/latest-news-and-updates). You should also not attend if you live in regions where the NSW or Australian Government has restricted travel.

This is an "arrive, orienteer, leave" event. Social distancing of 1.5m should be maintained at all times. Please do not gather before or after your run.
