The Metro Series is held in parkland and nature parks close to Canberra.

Courses range from 2km to 5km and very easy to medium navigation difficulty. A ‘Help’ person will be available to provide assistance at the event. Just turn up, no requirement to book ahead.

The ACT Saturday Series includes the ACT Junior League competition.
Parking is in La Trobe park and along Bedford Street, Deakin. Please park only on the southern side of the street, opposite the houses. Follow signs to the arena (~500m).
Orange 1 (2.6km), Orange 2 (2.0km), Green (1.4km), Blue (1.0km).
The map is tiny (around 300m x 300m) and there will be many competitors, so please take care running around corners.
There are a few artificial fences on course, do not go through them (they are there for a reason).
There is a map flip on both orange courses. Orange courses will have a blind queuing start, competitors will be set off at 1 minute intervals.
Blue and Green entrants will be allowed to collect their maps at registration.
There is a 30m taped route from the map collection point to the start triangle, the start punch will be at the map collection point.
