Garingal Ultrasprint - Wahroonga Park

Orienteering for the time poor. Courses will be short, incorporate a maze and be entirely within the park. Complete 1, 2 or 3 courses and receive a cumulative time. The name of the event relates to the distance you will cover rather than the speed you will be going. A great opportunity to try out orienteering without any risk of getting lost.

There are 3 legs to be run within the 2 hour time slot. If you punch incorrect control numbers the penalties will be:
- 45 seconds for missing a control.
- 45 seconds for punching a control in the wrong order.
- 15 seconds for punching an extra control not on your course.
So it will typically cost you a minute if you punch the wrong control.

The start will be open from 9.30-11:30am only. Legs can be run in any order. Entry fee is $12 seniors; $7 juniors plus $4 SI hire if required and $3 extra for non-members. Courses Close at 12 noon. Please enter the park from the Southern (railway station) side to get to the assembly area.

Classes are Junior/Open/Senior/Walking Men/Women and Groups. (Masters, Veterans, Super-Vets, Legends and Immortals are all Seniors).

Pre-entry is highly recommended for this event, so we can print the required number of maps. There will be very limited entry available on the day. Enter On Day is intended for first timers and non-members. You may miss out if you do not pre-enter!

(IF you use an SI11 stick (9nnnnnn) or a SIAC (8nnnnnn) AND you think that you will have punch intervals below 4 seconds in the maze, please use an older stick or swap your stick at the event for an SI8 one (no charge). If pre-entering, select the "Swap SI stick" service as well so we know to allocate you a hire stick and bring your existing stick along to swap.
