Event information: Day 2 Flinders Ranges Weekend - Wilpena Spurs OY

Export to calendar Back

50 km north of Hawker.
Location: Sacred Canyon Road, Flinders Ranges National Park, SA.

Signs from: Corner of the Wilpena Resort Road and the Hawker to Blinman Road.

Map: Wilpena Spurs 1:10,000 scale. 5m contour interval. A4 sized map for all courses. Map originally field worked in 1987, georeferenced and converted to ISOM 2017-2 in 2020.

Terrain and vegetation: The terrain in the competition area varies from flat/undulating to steep and rocky with deeply incised watercourses in some places. Native pine trees with low sharp twiggy branches prevail in some areas. Summer rainfall has generated substantial weed growth (which is now dead) in the lower areas. This slows running speeds and makes the topography harder to see in such areas. Protective gaiters/trousers are recommended.
