Export to calendar Back

There are five courses in the usual "Bush Classic" format except entrants can choose to start in daylight, twilight or darkness. The day event start is between 4:00 pm and 6.14 pm. The night event start is between 6.15 pm and 6.45 pm. All courses close at 8.30 pm. There are no mass starts. For those that are new to night orienteering, there is an option to complete a course in daylight (from 4.00 pm) and then repeat it at night (from 6.15 pm).

Those entering the night event need to bring their own torch or headlight. Day event entrants are advised to take their own torch or headlight with them if there is a chance that they will not finish their course before it gets dark.

Travel south on the Sedgwick Rd. Turn right onto Springs Rd, just before the Sedgwick Hall. Travel 400 m, then turn right onto Hogans Rd. Continue for 900 m to the assembly area.

Travel north on the Calder Hwy. Exit at Elphinstone and turn right onto the Bendgo-Sutton Grange Rd. Continue for 30.0 km (becomes Sedgwick Rd), then turn left onto Springs Rd, just after the Sedgwick Hall. Travel 400 m, then turn right onto Hogans Rd. Continue for 900 m to the assembly area.

Parking is on the left (southern) side of Hogans Rd. It is preferable that entrant's vehicles do not enter Hogans Rd from Mandurang Sth Rd.
