Export to calendar Back

You've conquered the streets during the Urban Adventure and you've nailed the JCU CATI - so now it's time to show us your style in a traditional Cross-Country event on the JCU Map. Matt is your course setter and she's been told to be nice !! ... So its time to step out of your urban and training comfort zone, grab a mate or two and take on a course or two at JCU !!

* Courses Start times will be between 8am and 10am
* Course Closure is 11.30am ... ie be back before then !!

* Easy (green) - approx 3.2km, a great starter event to get the feel of bush orienteering if you are new, young or taking the family for a nice wander in the scrub
* Moderate Short (orange) - approx 2.3km, the next step up in regards to navigation but lots of catching features in case you get a bit disorientated.
* Long Moderate (Long Orange) - approx 4.4km, navigation is more bush orientated and a bit more of a challenge.

* JCU Engineering Carpark - same as for the CATI last weekend - lots of signs !

* Suggest long pants (definitely suggest long pants) and water-carrying ability, comfortable runners / boots and a hat or cap.
* If you own a compass bring it along
* We will have compasses, whistles, maps, water and softies at the start-finish.

* $8 per person and $15 for a family
