This event is for beginners as well as regular orienteers with a mixture of courses to suit all experience levels.  There will be help on hand to assist newcomers, so dive in and come along to try this growing sport.

At this event, courses will be set across both the secondary school campus and neighbouring Heaton Public School.  Take is slowly and savour the puzzle and or think fast and run hard - it's up to you.
