The Sydney Sprint season features great short courses on the best sprint maps. This week we explore the bush and tracks of Excelsior and Saw Mill Creeks. The map scale is 1:3000 with 2.5m contours drawn to sprint standards. Great summer orienteering using one of the best areas in the Hills area. Finish off your weekend with the challenge of navigating while running at speed.

The Sprint Series is held on Sunday evenings with STARTS FROM 5PM TO 6PM. COURSE CLOSURE IS AT 6:30PM. The Sydney Sprint Series provides a choice of three line courses suitable for all ages and skill levels. SI Air will be activated.
