Jaunt at John Forrest is an ideal introductory event to bush orienteering. The event is close to Perth and designed to ensure that you are never far from a track. Try some trail walking or running with a difference.
The event is being managed by the Orienteering Association of Western Australia (OAWA) and is being held at John Forrest National Park. Details of entry fees for John Forrest National Park are at https://parks.dpaw.wa.gov.au/know/park-entry-fees

Start your bush adventure anytime between 9.30 and 11 am and plan to finish by 1 pm. There are courses for all ages, fitness levels and abilities.

The Setters invite all competitors to take a selfie of themselves and the giant yoorna (bobtail). Post your selfie on Facebook #orienteeringWA before midnight on 4 July to be in the running to win a massive prize. Anna Napier, the President of OAWA will judge the entries and select the winning selfie. The Setters will award the massive prize to the winner as soon as they can.

Bring walking or running gear, a water bottle and snacks to Jaunt at John Forrest. Before you start we will give you a map showing where the controls are and an electronic timing chip for you to use to record which controls you visit. We are a friendly bunch and will help you plan your route to find those controls.

After Jaunt at John Forrest all results will be published online via Eventor.
