Export to calendar Back

Location: Christison Park, Old South Head Road, Vaucluse. Alongside the grandstand opposite Village High Road.

This event is the first for the new season and provides an opportunity to make a fast start while other orienteers are recovering from their efforts at the Oceania Carnival and Australian Championships.

The Sydney Summer Series is also known as Sydney Map Running and challenges participants to navigate on the run (imagine running AND thinking!). It is the best summer orienteering in Sydney utilising the city’s parks, history, beaches, harbour and bush. All are on show in the even more action packed 29th Sydney Summer Series.

This is a 45 minute score event with a map scale of 1:10,000. Starts are from 4:30pm until 6:45pm but earlier starts are possible if set up has completed. A Mini course is available.
