The assembly for the Twilight event is at the Stromlo Bushfire Memorial - off Swallowtail Rd, Wright. this is a different assembly location to the Primary Schools Championships which will be held earlier in the day.

The map scale is 1:4000

Much of the map is open but the ground can be very uneven underfoot, particularly on the southern half of the map. Ankle protection is recommended. Please take caution when crossing Holdens Creek or entering controls close to the creek as either side can be steep and slippery. Be aware that there are many blackberry bushes throughout the map.

Crossings: Holdens Creek runs through the length of this map and most of the creek is impassable. Suggested crossing points have been marked with the purple crossing symbol on the map but will NOT be marked in the terrain.

Please watch out for bike riders who also may be using the trails.
There are 5 courses:
• Blue - 1.5 km, 13 controls
• Green - 1.9 km, 15 controls
• Brown (a mixture of easy (green) and moderate (orange) legs) - 2.3 km, 15 controls
• Orange 2 - 2.9 km, 23 controls
• Orange 1 - 4.1 km, 29 controls
Some SI sticks only store 30 controls (plus the start and finish). If you are running Orange 1 and using one of these SI sticks please note that punching one extra control (e.g. by mistake) will fill the SI storage. If you punch more than one extra control and exceed the SI storage you should manually punch your map at the final controls of the course to record you have been there.
