Event information: Torrens in Highbury & Athelstone: MTBO & Foot O Score Event

Export to calendar Back

Explore this little known part of the Upper Torrens including the Aqueduct Reserve. Some markers are in a newly opened section of this reserve. This is a full SI score event with classes to suit MTBO riders and foot O competitors. A limited number of map boards are available for hire for MTBO riders ($5 pay at event) To book phone Kay Haarsma 0403 565 534

Markers can be visited in any order. They are worth different points (10, 20, 30 or 40) according to distance and difficulty. If you go over the time for your course you lose 5 points per minute and will lose all points after 15 minutes. Take care to only punch controls that are on your map as your SI stick in most cases can only store 30 controls. The foot O map (Foot90 & Foot45) is different to the MTBO map but they contain some common controls. The 3hr (Foot180) course uses the MTBO Map. This class may particularly appeal to rogainers or orienteers wanting a much longer run.
Pre entry is strongly recommended to ensure you get a map and a pre-entry discount.

START: Signs from corner Lower North East Road and Dene Rd. The start is inside the entrance to the reserve on the east side of Historic Drive. See link to map below.
