Export to calendar Back

Venue: Nirimba Educational Precinct, enter at Eastern Road off Quakers Hill Pwky, Quakers Hill.

'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 10 events in the program this season including a big Sprint State League weekend to end the series.
Courses: Each event has 1 course of 3 – 3.5km (shortest route).
Start Times: Between 5.00pm and 6.00pm, mainly on Sunday afternoons.
Course Closure 19:00pm.
Entry Fees: Orienteering club members $12 seniors. Non-members $3 extra. Sportident hire $4 per event.
First-timers are most welcome, experienced orienteers will be available to provide instructions. All runners, joggers and walkers are welcome. Pre-entry available or Enter on the Day.
