Export to calendar Back

Venue: Callan Park (Rozelle Hospital), Enter Callan Park off Balmain Road, Lilyfield (opposite Cecily Street) and follow orienteering signs to the N and W of The Sydney College of the Arts (Park Drive, North Crescent, Central Avenue) to the parking area at the SW corner of the College. Follow tapes SE to assembly from car park (note that this is the same assembly as used for the November Ultrasprint)
'Sprint' is the newest format of our sport. Think of it as the T20 of orienteering. At the elite level it is meant to be fast and furious, where an error of even 10 seconds could mean the difference between first and fourth placings. Courses are short with lots of controls and lots of changes of direction, and held mainly in urban environments (uni campuses, former hospital sites, sporting complexes etc).
There are 8 events in the program this season including a brand new map at Middle Head prepared by NSW Stinger Andy Hill.
Courses: Each event has 1 course of 2.5 – 3km with winning times for the best orienteers about 15 minutes.
Start Times: Between 5.00pm and 6.30pm, mainly on Sunday afternoons.
Entry Fees: Orienteering club members $10 seniors. Non-members $3 extra. Sportident hire $4 per event.
Maps: 1:4000 or 1:5000. Sportident timing used for at all events.
Classes & point score are the same as summer series events. There are 8 events and the best 5 will count.
