2018 State League #15 Mt Sugarloaf

Challenging sandstone terrain with significant variations in runnability, visibility and levels of detail. Generally undulating to steep. The shorter courses have been set to avoid most of the rough, steep and thick areas. There are a couple of roads on the map and a track network close to the picnic area and TV towers that have been utilised for the easier courses. Course lengths for the hard courses are somewhat shorter than normal due to the physical nature of the area. There are great views of the surrounding countryside from several control sites and along the walk to the start. The assembly area for the event will be to the north of the public picnic area at the top of Mount Sugarloaf, accessed off George Booth Drive, Seahampton (less than 10 minutes from the M1). The map contains intricate rock and rockface detail so will be printed at 1:7500 scale for all courses to assist with readability. There are public toilets near the picnic ground. Parking marshals will be on hand to ensure cars are parked efficiently, thus allowing everyone to park on top of the mountain. Control units have been set to operate as SI Air. More details to follow in the event bulletin closer to the event date.
